Jack was very strong in his faith and would often recite scripture with ease.
Jack was a hardworking man and had many interests, some of which included hunting, fishing, skiing, and taking care of his dogs Trigger and Mojo. He was one with nature and loved being out on the lake. One of his fondest memories that he often shared was living on Toledo Bend Lake for many years with Emilie. Jack was fun-loving and lived life to the fullest and when Jack was around it was never a dull moment. He was always laughing and would brighten any room with his energetic presence.
