Just wanted to express my condolences to Jack's family on his death. You could say we were buddies for 3 to 4 months every spring for 4 years on CCSU's baseball field. He was a terrific ball player. One of the best on the team our senior year. Life took us in different directions after we graduated together and regrettably we never stayed in touch. I moved to Colorado right after graduation while he stayed in the east. I will remember him as a good teammate. All the best. Ray Brodeur

For his science, photography, and love of outdoors. May he live on through the growing tree and teach others the same respect that he had. God Bless
