Angie, Madi, and Macy, my family and I have continued to keep you in our prayers. I am so sorry for your loss. JJ was an incredible person and he brought so much light into the world by making others smile and being an example of how to live life. He will be missed.

So sorry to hear of JJ's passing. He was the Board of Trustees treasurer at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art and my mentor as the CFO of the museum. Thanks JJ for your service.

My deepest sorry for your loss. Please know you all are in my family's prayers. I had the pleasure of working with JJ as supplier to Nucor Fastener. I always enjoyed our negotiations and JJ's approach. We always kept things professional but after the meetings were finished we had a great time and truly enjoyed JJ's company and pleasant demeanor and approach to life!

My wife Nancy and I knew JJ and Angie through the Industrial Fasteners Institute where JJ and I served on the Board of Directors. JJ was always happy and enthusiastic; a pleasure to be around. When he accepted another assignment for Nucor and told us he would no longer be attending IFI meetings, we were happy for him, but sad to see him go.
Nancy and I send our deepest sympathies to JJ's family. He was a warm and special man.

My deepest condolences to Angie, Madilyn, Macy and the entire family. I met and gained friendship with JJ through work/industry. We shared good times and he left me with great memories. I am deeply saddened over his passing. My words cannot properly express the sympathy and condolences I wish to share with the entire family. JJ touched many lives. I am grateful and lucky to be one of them!

J.J. was always such a joy to speak and work with. He was always encouraging, supporting and full of laughter. I regret us not staying in touch over the years. I'm so very sorry for your loss and will be keeping your family in my prayers.
