Loss

Jack was lost when his TBD Devastator collided in mid-air with that of a squadron-mate's on February 1, 1942 while on a strike mission in the vicinity of the Marshall Islands. He was a member of Torpedo Squadron (VT) 5, operating from USS Yorktown (CV 5).

His wife was listed as next of kin.

It's unclear why he is listed so late chronologically with respect to his classmates in Memorial Hall.
