Jack is probably sharing his jokes with god and has him rolling in the clouds. Jack was a great man and a great friend to the Franklin County OSU Alumni Club. He loved the Buckeyes and loved his guns. He supported our clubs scholarship each year and loved our annual target shoot. He will be missed as he touched many.
