I met Jack shortly after I began my career in eDiscovery in 2006. One of his colleagues said his nickname was “Happy Jack,” because of his cheerful personality. I found his nickname to be extremely accurate. Every project with him was a grand adventure.
We first presented together at CEIC, focusing on how to preserve electronically stored information and computer forensics. We had a seminar series together where we went from computer forensics to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and trial presentation. I had a lot of fun on that series with Jack.
Jack unknowingly called me with a job prospect within an hour of my mother’s death. He knew I had been laid off and was looking for a new job. He called out of thoughtfulness and offered kind words for my mother’s passing.
Those who knew Jack will miss him. I offer his family my sincere condolences. Jack was an outstanding human being who left this Earth far too early.
