So Sorry the hear of his passing. Nik Jones spoke very fondly of his uncle. Leroy Jack obviously had a huge impact on Nik with his family stories and life lessons. I have no doubt that Leroy Jack's relationship with Nik shaped Nik into the empathetic and understanding person he is, which in turn has impacted and helped so many people in need.
