Dear Lorraine, My deepest sympathy and condolences to you and your family. Jack was a wonderful mentor to me. He hired me as his safety officer at BJDS and taught me so much about the insulation trade. I have never forgotten him and will always be thankful for the opportunity of working with him and shsring his knowledge of life. He is a good man. A blessing that the old SE Catholic guy touched my life, an old NE Public kid from Bridesburg. Jack, you and family are in our heart and prayers. Much love and peace, Al & Anne Zielinski
