I knew Jack well. He had a passion for serving the public both as a police officer and a firefighter. He did many heroic things during his career and never hesitated to act quickly. In addition to his law enforcement career, Jack volunteered for the Lyndon Fire Protection District where he rose through the ranks to Assistant Chief. He held that office at the time of his death. A great man gone way too soon.
