I just learned of Jack's passing. I worked for and with him for 17 years in Fairfield and Bridgeport. He truly was an "innovative" business man who worked very hard to support the US footwear industry. These were hard times in the industry and he continually strove to better the many client companies as they struggled to survive.
Jack was an significant part of my career and his mentorship stood me well as I went on to 20 years with New Balance. May God bless him.
My thoughts are with Sandra,, Stephen, and Cynthia. (Cynthia: I read your wonderful book- a beautiful testament.)
sincerely, Dan Luparello
