As someone who had the pleasure of knowing Jack for years, I can tell you that he was as genuine as it gets, was extremely passionate about the important issues of our time and possessed a truly admirable work ethic. I know he will be remembered for all of those qualities and also for his phenomenal work as Executive Director of the Virginia NAACP, where he worked diligently to improve the communities he loved so dearly.
