I'm lucky enough to have spent some time with him at the collage tournament held a Sundown 1 a couple weeks ago. He was upbeat and drove several events. He was concerned about getting enough time in the boat to make sure he kept his Senior Driver rating. What a great guy!

 

Love you Jack! God bless you!

Were he to post here, I'm sure he would remind us to wear sunscreen and a hat, and to make regular visits to the dermatologist. Many conditions that become cancer are discoverable and treatable well before they become a big problem. Poor guy. May God bless him and his family.

Jack is a good guy, and let's not write him off. Don't say "terminal", as there are always advancements these days. Back in the Back When, all of us were unaware of what sun exposure

could do, and he isn't the only oldtime skier/judge dealing with skin cancer.

I've has the pleasure of working with Jack at the last couple ASU fund raiser tournaments in Phoenix. Having struggled with skin cancer myself this news is hard to accept. I'll reach out to him soon. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

Update:

I just spoke to Jack. He is alert and in good spirits considering the circumstances. The doctors are sending him home today. They are managing the pain and talking hospice when the time comes. He appreciates the phone calls and emails.
