I worked with Jack from 1954 to 1976. It was a pleasure to work with both he and his wife, Betty. They are both gone now. Our team is getting smaller and smaller. Goodbye, Jack. I will miss you.

Working with Jack (Chedekel as we would call him) at WDAU-TV22 was a joy. He and his wife Betty had the best stories--especially the ones that highlighted their annual trips to Sanibel Island. I spoke with Jack awhile back and he was still cracking jokes. His kindness and great sense of humor will be greatly missed. I was truly blessed to have known you, Jack...may you now be dancing i heaven with Betty. With heartfelt sympathy, Your Friend Sylvia
