Jack passed away last night after a short but ugly fight with cancer.

This is sad. I've had some really nifty exchanges with Bob here on the Daily Page. RIP Jackson aka Bob. Thanks for the info Ben.

In honor of Bob/Jackson, be kind to your Union Cabbie.

I'm sorry to hear that! I envision him as coming back as a spectre-ghost, with chains, haunting present day Scrooge's! I'm sorry his community board of neighborhood watching, never really took off.

That is sad news. I'm sure Jack will continue to watch over our discussions. Rest in peace.

Dang, this is sad news. I was hoping he'd kick cancer's butt. Ben let us know about the memorial service.

Jack was unique and had a wonderful sense of humor. He exhibited this with his use of funny photos and graphics. He often would post photos to express himself. I remember him once posting a whole long line of Nazi elephants on madison.com, which got taken down after a complaint from some right-winger. He fought the good fight and will be missed a lot. :cry: :cry:

JC was a true character, an iconoclastic icon.
Smart and funny and weird and cool.

The memorial for him was nice. A lot of Union cabbies. Stories about Jack's many experiences with newspapers, demonstrations, and just generally helping people. He was a warm and sweet person and is missed by many people.

Can anyone come up with a photo? I'd love to know if I ever rode with him.
