Jack was a beloved member of CD&R for nearly 20 years. It is hard for us to imagine that he will not be with us to push, prod, challenge, joke, and, above all, set the highest possible standards for each of us, our portfolio company executives, and the Firm. Jack was one-of-a kind. He had a big heart and cared deeply about people. His generosity of spirit was evident in his abiding belief that individuals can achieve great things, and he took immense pride in helping people succeed. His handwritten notes to co-workers acknowledging a particular accomplishment - great or small - are legendary. Jack’s contributions to CD&R will be long-lasting, and we are very fortunate to have called him a friend. We send our heartfelt sympathies to his wife Suzy and his entire family.
