USS New Jersey Veterans

The members of the USS New Jersey Veterans Association are deeply saddened to hear of the loss of our shipmate, Jack. We join with so many others who knew Jack in offering our deepest sympathy on his passing. Although it is of little consolation at this sad time, it should be of some satisfaction to know that, in his passing, you can celebrate the end of a wonderfully productive life.

The measure of a life well-lived is not in how much wealth, or what possessions they have accumulated, but rather through the lives they touched and the sorrow they leave behind. If the outpouring of sympathy on his loss is any indication, and it most certainly is, you can proudly and confidently say that Jack's life was indeed, a life well-lived.

May you find peace and comfort in knowing that his loss is felt by all who knew and loved Jack.  May he have “Fair Winds and Following Seas” on his journey to the Lord.
