Over his lifetime, Jack was very involved with the Evangelical Christian movement, serving in positions throughout his local church and in various Christian ministries. His love for the Lord was evident as he was never ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Jack was an active sports participant and enthusiast. He excelled in high school football with Etobicoke Collegiate as a two-way city all-star. Hockey was his passion. The Leafs, Blue Jays and Argonauts were always the center of any conversation.
