    For anyone here on VMB that might know, or remember Jack ....

    Jack passed away recently (age 67) ... details unknown.
    Jack was originally from Columbus, Ohio , but years ago developed some health problems, and periodically lived in Florida, and then settled in Roanoke, VA to be near his daughter.

    Jack was a long-time fan of Las Vegas, and his various LV message boards, and was even in the early stages of planning for an April return to Vegas. We were hoping to meet up then .... :cry:

    Oh, this saddens me greatly. I remember Jack from LVTalk and OpenVegas boards. How he loved staying at the Rio and Vegas in general.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Jack and I got together for breakfast in Vegas in October and I was concerned as he didn't look well and was struggling with his health issues. Jack was a daily poster on Bonnie's board and made many friends through the board over the years. He was a true gentleman and will be missed! I will raise a toast to Jack in our favourite place, Vegas, next week. RIP Jack.

    His strong (board) presence will be missed.
    Read many of his daily comments and enjoyed them all.
    RIP Jack

    I remember him from other boards. He was always very kind. I hope his family is doing OK.

    Wow, sad.

    For the longest time I thought "JackinCol" meant he was from Colorado Springs... I eventually figured out this wasn't true, LOL.

    I'm always so sorry to hear we lost one of our "tribe" here. I got a PM from his daughter about this and just saw it this morning. Thanks for posting this, Buddha.

    He was from Columbus, Ohio. When his health deteriorated he moved to Roanoke to live with family.

    Bre, those are awesome pictures. Glad you and Jack were able to connect during his last Vegas trip. I know you will have a toast in his honor on your upcoming trip.
