I think of you so many times throughout each day -- a funny story or event that I just want to share with you, but can't. It's been almost 5 months since you left us and the heartache doesn't go away. But I know you are happy and not in pain or having difficulty just breathing comfortably or walking. Our Lord decided he needed another Welsh voice in the choir and so I can only pray that you are watching

I will never forget your kindness to me and how grateful i am that i had the opportunity to meet someone like you. I will never forget my time in Washington and still remember my stay like it was yesterday. A true warrior, academic and all round amazing guy.

This is just an ordinary day. Not my father's birthday, not Father's Day... but it is still an important day. It's important because it is a day. like every other, that I think of him. A day that I miss him and my heart cries. Dad wouldn't want me to say SAD things, because this incredible man was one that brought laughter to everyone, who wore a constant smile - a genuine smile. He was the happiest person I've ever

It was a great pleasure to not only know Jack as a colleague but as a friend. His smile and enthusiasm were infectious. In addition to the work in the NCIS, Jack also had a full career in health care. A life that was truly dedicated to helping others. He an Jane made the perfect couple as they both believed so much in people and the power of love, compassion and patience. Jane my prayers are with you, your family and loved ones. May God bless you and keep you in the warmth and light of his love.

Jack was the brother I never had. We met in third grade at Langdon Elementry and became lifelong friends. Together, we shared good and traumatic times. Although, there were times when our lives took different paths, when we got together or talked on the phone our relationship picked up right where we left off. Jack was kind, thoughtful, and had a wonderful sense of humor which is why he attracted so many friends that loved him dearly. Jack was an inspiration to us all.

Jack & I had a very modern introduction through his Niece Nancy Hughes of whom I became friends with in 2007. Jack & I built up a wonderful friendship by exchanging emails & it didn’t take me long to grow very fond of his boyish charm, his silly sense of humour, his gentle nature & to also realise his great interest in his Welsh Heritage&culture.
He was very proud to have worked at NCIS & he was so excited for us
