Dear Jack – You were a good person and great friend. It’s hard to believe you are gone. I will miss you and think of you often. Rest in Peace Friend.
Jack, so many great memories- work and play, you were committed to family and great at balancing “stuff” out. One of a kind my friend for so many years . God Bless.
Everyone has a good “Jack Lee” story. He will be long remembered. Rest in peace Jack. Danny and Terri Amburn
Jack was a 110% guy. He took on the world with enthusiasm, humor, and a fair helping of street smarts. Whatever the venture, Jack would be known as a “key player”. It has been my honor to count him as my friend for almost fifty years. Happy trails, Chief!
Jack, you were such an influence on my personal and work life. You were always there to advise, educate, and support. And, there was always a story to make me laugh. I’m glad the pain is gone but I will miss you! Loved you, my friend, Sherry
Jackie jo Lee: Enough talk about work. I cherish the lies we told one another on our “business” wink wink golf outings. You are a true gem. Love, Yack
