Born and raised in La Jolla and with a great personality, it seemed logical he would become a mailman. Everyone on Jack’s La Jolla mail route knew him.
He used to love Christmas – his tips weren’t a few bucks or coins, but 6-packs and/or cases of beer. Many would asked him in for a beer or invite him to their Christmas parties. He was well-liked and knew everyone by their first and last name, their kids and even the dogs’ name. He was always talking to everyone and sharing stories.
