For 39 years Jack worked for NYS and retired as an Administrator for the Office of Mental Health in 2006. When his children were young Jack was a coach for the Pine Bush Little League. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed working out at the gym. During the summer he could always be found reading in the backyard next to the pool. He would never miss a NY Yankees game on TV and at least once a year Jack and his wife would enjoy tailgating at a Buffalo Bills game with his son Brian. They also enjoyed traveling, cruises and spending time with many wonderful friends through the years.
