Award presenter John-Farmanesh-Bocca said this about Jack:
"I was struck at how open, easy and available he was to have a conversation with me, about things that really mattered. I mean here was a guy who was doing what I wanted to do, A NEW YORK STAGE fixture - Dozens of plays at The New York Shakespeare Festival with fellow Juilliard alums Kevin Kline, Val Kilmer, and Mandy Patinkin, he had acted toe to toe with them all. He had worked with legendary directors the likes of Gene Saks, Carey Perloff, Steven Berkoff, Richard Foreman, Robert Wilson, who trusted him to bring to life a variety of characters that any actor worth their salt would envy.
Oh, and from time to time he understudied a guy named Al Pacino."
