To Susan and all of Jack's family. I am saddened to learn of Jack's passing. But, I know I will see him again in eternity. Jack was from Bellevue in my home County of Eaton. We knew each other in 4-H and then became FarmHouse Fraternity Brothers at MSU. Jack is the one who encouraged me to invite my wife of 54 years, Polly, on our first date. He was a true and faithful Brother in life and in Christ.

I want to say my CONDOLANCES to the Morse family.
It was a very moment when I heard of Jack's passing.
Over the years I have had numerous opportunities to interact with this gentle? Calm, open minded educator. Jack was was a natural educator that had the student and learning.
Jack was my professor for several classes as I did my course work at Mid. My next interaction with Jack was when I held as an educator for Harrison Community Schools and he was elected to the school board.
My next interaction with Jack was after I finished grad school Jack and I worked together in providing opportunity for science education to the teachers of Michigan.
The education field lost one it's finest example and/or mentor with the passing of Jack.

Our deepest sympathies to Jack’s family. We were students of Jack in 1982. He was without a doubt one of the smartest persons we have ever met. More importantly he was a kind and decent man. We will remember him always.
