Jack was well known in the Silverdale community and was active in both the community through the Silverdale Rotary Club and CKHS activities.

Accordingly, his families wishes are that this scholarship be set up for the highest achieving student in CK’s vocational programs that prepare young people for great jobs right out of a great high school – CKHS. His family is very proud of Jack’s contributions to making CK a better school both while he was there, and until his passing.
