    I am very sorry to hear about Jack’s passing. I worked with him in many marketing endeavors with him when I was the Supervisorvof Marine Facilities with the City of Fort Lauderdale from 1985 to 2010. He coined the term “Boat Show Road Show” which was a marketing scheme designed to travel to boat shows representing the City of Fort Lauderdale Marine Facilities.

    We worked very hard to make the program work and even attended the Toronto International Boat Show which was a huge success. He was somewhat of a pioneer in his knowledge of marketing in the public and private secitors of the Marine Industry. He also served on the Board of Directors of the Marine Industries Association of South Florida. He will be remembered for his professionalism and keen awareness of finding new ways to achieve whatever goals he established for himself. He will be truly missed!

    God bless him!
