  1. Hi:

    Jack was my first Supervisor as a young (temporary indefinite substitute clerk not to exceed 90 days) Postal employee at Pueblo in 1958.

    He taught me a lot and was very instrumental in my becoming a Postal Inspector and having a succesful career until I retired in 1990.

    We are indebted to his help and guidance in our early years.

    We also appreciated his work at the credit union which we are still members of.

    Please accept our condolences and our prayers.

    Jerry and Lauretta Jones
