Jack was an avid participant in a wide variety of activities including flag football, baseball, basketball, wrestling, and snow skiing. Jack was an incredibly loving and vivacious young boy, appreciated by all who knew him for his lively and giving spirit and steely determination. In life and in death, Jack will forever be remembered for the immeasurable joy he brought to all who had the pleasure of knowing him, a joy whose wide reach belied his six short years.
Some mourners did confirm that in death, Jack was dressed much the same way he was proud to be seen during his short life. The devoted New York Giants fan was buried in a red and white Giants jersey with the name of his favorite player, Victor Cruz, emblazoned on the back.
Jack’s best friend wrote a letter which read:
Jack, You are my best friend. We had fun together. I will miss you. I will talk to you in my prayers. I love you Jack. Love, John
