    Jack was my mentor and my friend. He was firm, fair and friendly. He taught me what business was all about but more, he taught me about life. Jack had a way of getting the best out of you while making you the best. It wasn’t always about being right but taking advantage of a situation and making it right. Jack set the example for us all to follow. No-one was ever late for a meeting or missed a day of work. You didn’t want to disappoint. Jack was my mentor, my friend! We will all miss him.
