Jack was the symbol of Christ’s love to me in his work both as an usher and in his work at the St. Vincent De Paul society food bank at our parish. I am saddened by his passing.

My heart is heavy and I speak for all of the members of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul in telling all of you that Jack will be missed more than words can say. Jack saw the face of Christ in everyone and he was the face of Christ to all he so graciously served. Heaven called home a true champion of the poor.
