Jack was a Meadows guy. i don't know if this is the first time he's been listed in the In Memory section. Jack was a homeroom classmate at Meadows. I always wondered what became of him. i recall his claim to fame the ability to gross out the girls in class by flipping his top eyelids up. after the eeeewwwww heard across the classroom, he flipped them back.

Yes, I remember the eyelid thing very well. Jack was a funny guy.

It saddened me to see Jack's name on this list. When I arrived at Madison Meadows in the middle of the 7th grade I was seated in front of Jack. His jokes and pranks made me laugh from day one, although his habit of flipping the rubber bands off his braces at people did not please a few of his classmates. He entertained other adolescent boys by demonstrating how far he could spit through the gap in his front teeth. It was impressive. The braces eventually robbed him of this part of his act. I, too, recall his eyelid trick! He would spring it on the unsuspecting and freak them out. He was a fellow lefty, and we shared bats and gloves from time to time. But, the lasting memory is his laugh and his ability to make other people laugh. I never saw a frown on his face. Rest in peace, my friend.

I was sad to read that Jack had died. I believe Jack and I got along well during years at Madison Meadows. Remember participating in softball games with him at Meadows, and that he was a good left-handed batter. Probably participated in other sports with Jack on the Meadows playground (including flag football). Also, Jack's father drove me, Jack, and his brothers to the movie theater to see The Ten Commandments movie. Nick Belkoffer was a mutual friend during Meadows years.  

Jack had a lot of energy. I remember (as did others) his trick of flipping up his eyelids. It was startling the first time you saw him do it.

We stayed acquainted duiring high school years, and worked togither on the Senior Class Council.

He wrote a kind and complementary comment in my senior annual, and I appreciated that. I probably wrote the same type of comment in his annual.
