I worked as a CNA with Jack for a while. I would spend most of my shift talking to him and spending time with him. He told me so many stories and memories he had. I am so grateful to have met him and I will always remember him. My heart hurts having learned about his passing. He truly was an amazing man. He will be deeply missed.
