Light a Candle
In all my years working at the DGA, I never met a more decent man. Jack was a man of principles, honor and decency. It is a sign of the strength of the DGA that someone as decent as Jack was chosen as its President. I am grateful to have been able to work with him and get to know him; having a man of principle as a leader made me proud and helped guide my own work. Beside all that, he was a good friend to me.

My first introduction to this amazing man and family was through his daughter and my best friend, Liz. We always tried to arrange our work trips from Phoenix to L.A. late in the week so we could stay at her parents' home over the weekend. This was nearly 30 years ago. I will always remember that whenever any member of this loving family would leave the house, there were kisses all around. Jack was once just running to the post office and again, kisses all around! This example of natural, giving family love made a huge impact on me. Through the years that followed, multiple examples of Jack and Patt's love for their family and faith have benefited so many. Thank you god for Jack. He was such an inspiration to those not only "in the business" but us regular folks on how to live a life of love by example. My sincere sympathy to all. May Jack and Liz's fun laughter fill our hearts forever. Martha Rogers, Phoenix, AZ
In 1975 while visiting from the East Coast, I was offered the chance to work on a pilot helmed by Jack called "Love Nest". It dealt with the trials and tribulations of retired people just making do on social security. The average age of the cast was somewhere about 80 and required very special handling of the principal actors due to their frailty. Jack was an inspiration with his patience and attention to detail. Although the pilot never sold it was on his recommendation that I considered moving to and working on the West Coast. Without that push I would never have met my wife of 36 years nor had the career I was able to carve out in Hollywood. Jack also corralled me into committing myself to years of service to the guild that we both loved so much. Thanks, Jack and may Angels carry you home.
You were such a loving, giving man and so great to know. I am blessed to be a part of this amazing family...We loved you Jacko, so much. Everyone did.
I am so heartbroken this morning! When I met you and Pat I knew I had two new friends for life. I thought I had more time to come and visit you, so this is my goodbye for now. You were a good man and I loved calling you Dad. Big hugs in heaven Jack.. Your friend and other daughter, Shelia Moses
Jack was the first "big time TV sitcom director" I ever worked with. He was such a classy and gentle person. And funny. Lord, he loved to laugh and he would spring right back and deliver jokes and stories of his own... had me in stitches. I'm so sad to hear he has passed. Jack is in all our prayers.
Your life has always been an encouragement, a model, and an inspiration to me. It made me feel special and honored to be the nephew of such an amazing person. The impact of your life will live on as an inheritance to those who knew you but your presence will no doubt be missed. I give Thanks to God for all you have done for me.
