Well-respected businessman with a very strong commitment to his community. Jack was especially proud of his time as President of Western General Mutual Insurance. He was a life member of Mississippi Masonic Lodge 157 & Member of Tunis Shrine. Jack’s strong faith in God was especially evident in the love he had for his family.
