Here are some of the recent comments from Jack’s family, friends, and colleagues, reproduced in full.
Jack’s third and last wife, Diana, wrote:
Thanks for the wonderful blog. Jack would have loved it. Theodore means “gift of God” which Jack most certainly was. I look forward to seeing you at the memorial at Courant on March 27.
Our mutual friend and colleague Jeanine Meyer wrote:
Dave, thank you for your part in the obituary. It did capture much? some? of Jack’s depth and breadth. I worked with him on a project involving computer music for middle school students in NYC. This was after doing a thesis for him on GYVE. I wonder how many of us would rank him the smartest person we know.
I haven’t seen Diana in many years. I do recall she has a vibrant personality and is a musician, or at least has a particular interest in music. Though not a musician, and I never saw him carry a tune, Jack had a great fondness for music, as is evident from Jeanine’s comment.
