Jack was a valued reviewer for The Mississippi Rag as well as a long-distance friend. He was an incredibly knowledgeable jazz writer and was extraordinarily responsible in meeting deadlines. We had many spirited, enjoyable discussions on music, musicians, and life in general, and he often shared fascinating memories of his life in jazz with me. He was tremendously supportive of me and the RAG, often voicing concern over my heavy workload. I always knew I could count on him, and I will miss him a great deal.
