I suspect that Jeff/Jack may well have hated this suggestion but does anyone know if there is perhaps a special charity that was meaningful to him? I'd like to make a donation in his honour.

He can't tell me "Pick your own d@mned charity and give to something YOU believe in" after all.

That is very generous of you. Thank you.
We will find out the answer and get back to you.

Thanks, Mach.

Everybody hurts. It's part of life. Don't miss the good stuff.

Very sad to hear this news. I have not been on here in quite some time but I can say that I truly owe so much of the best things in life to Jeff.

He held the mirror up for me as he did with so many of us so I could find myself in it.

You were fond of saying character is who you are when the lights go out and no one is watching. Well the lights have gone out and your light is shining.

He shared with me that Jack three beans was his persona of Everyman.... and someone he aspired to be IRL and and knowing him he was greater than J3B.

He always considered judgment beyond his pay grade and everyone else's and exhibited a compassion that is hard to embrace when we are hurting so much when we come here.

Something he taught me that has become a mantra in life is

It is not what someone does TO you but what you do WITH it that is important.

And...

NO BUTS!

What a f@cking great dude! (Sorry Jeff's mom)

God speed my friend. I will miss you but you are part of my life everyday though you do not know it.

I hope you can see that from where you are. It was a very special life you lived.

What lovely messages, I'm just so sad that I joined the site this late so never experienced his wise words.

Would it be at all possible for Job or Cadet to create a thread with his quotes over the years?

RIP Jeff/Jack

I'm not sure that can be done easily. Jack has been a member of this Forum for over 10 years and many of his threads are gone and attempting to go from one thread to another (possibly 350) that he has visited over the years would take quite a bit of time, i.e., to read each and every thread and find where Jack has made a quote to remember.

If members would like to start a thread with his quotes, then others can chime in with the quotes that he posted to them. Once the thread has been created, I will be happy to make it a sticky at the top of this Forum.

I need to dig up my collection of Jackisms. I'm sure others have some them as well...

True,

When you locate them, how about starting the thread and I'll tag it as a sticky?


Sit quietly, the answers will reveal themselves when you least expect them to.
The past is gone, the present is a gift and you need to focus on today, allow the future to reveal itself when it is ready.

I love this idea! It will take me some time to read through the pages of my threads.

I would echo what Grit said (hey Grit long time brother).... No BUTS or anything after a BUT is the excuse you give yourself.

I had just met Jack. I liked who I met. I am really sorry for all of you who have known and loved him for so many years, sorry for the loss of your friend. In our few exchanges, he was really jovial and playful, thanks J3B.
