  8. Marilyn I want to express my deepest condolences to you and your family. Jack was one of my favorite patients when he was here in detox, Not sure I will make it Sunday or Monday, but know you and of course Jack are in my prayers, I cannot count any longer how many we have lost to addiction in the recent past. But know that Jack had the most impact of all on the entire staff at Stella Maris. Hopefully you remember me I was Jacks counselor each time he came to detox.

  9. I will miss him dearly,he was a good conversation worker, but most of all a great friend

God bless Jack… R.I.P.

  13. I spent one of the best years of my life with Big Jack on Okinawa,Japan We worked together and our barracks rooms were right right door to each other. Needless to say, never a dull moment with Jack around. Miss you buddy. Always think of you every time I hear Social Distortion, even 25 years later. Rip bud

  14. My friend…Jack B Nimble…my heart is broken…i cant believe you are gone…this seems so unreal…i want you to know that you have been one of my very best friends these past couple years…we have confided in one another about the things going on our lives & tried to help each other as much as we possibly could…you always tried to make me feel better & said things to build me up when i was down…we talked almost every day when we could…& when we could not talk, i would wait to hear from you…cause i always knew in my heart that i would…& earlier this month…when i was sick on my birthday…you checked on me to make sure i was ok…if i had known it would have been one of the last times i would talk to you, i would have said so much more…i love you my friend…i will miss you forever…until we meet again…

  15. I served with Jack, we went to boot camp and combat training together.
    Lost touch with eachother but found eachother again a few years ago and planned on getting together this year for the MC bday… I am shattered with the news of this and offer my deepest sympathies and my most heart felt prayers. I looked forward to see I g his face and hearing his voice again. He was definitely a joker. Jack takes a piece of me with him.
    I can only pray that we don’t look at this as a loss, but what we have all gained from having Jack in our lives. Regardless of relation or length of time.
    If anyone reads this and would be so kind to tell me where he has been laid to rest, I would like to visit my brother 1 more time.
    Semper FI Jack.

  16. Jack and I went to boot camp and combat training together.
    We lost touch but found eachother 4 years ago and recently talked about reuniting this year for the MC bday….
    I knew he was going thru some struggle and was wondering why I hadn’t heard from him in a while…
    I am shattered by the news of this.
    Please know my deepest prayers are with you all.
    Semper Fi brother, you will be deeply deeply missed
