He thrilled everyone in Roller Derby, then impressed us all with the life he made for himself off the track. Thank you to his family and friends for sharing him with us. We will never forget this amazing man and athlete. God bless, Toddy G.

I am sorry for your loss. Although I only met Jack once, he started a wonderful family line. I will remember fondly the years spent with the Geffinger-O'Connell Tree. I am sure his spirit will carry you through the coming days.

Charlie and I think of Jack each and every time we go to The Links Grille. We always think of those times before when we'd first see his car parked outside the eatery with its personalized license plate before meeting up with him inside. Great guy! We've missed--and will continue to miss--not seeing him around the way we once did.
