He was such a vital, positive and open-hearted man.You can find out more about Jack and his work by visiting the exhibition about jack running at Walsall Local History Centere in Essex Street on online at the group set up in tribute to him by Robert and Mick Stackhouse.

Jack shall never be forgotten. We have lost a gentleman of charm, intelligence and sensitivity. May he rest in peace.
