Jack is survived by his wife Karen Colleluori Desso; his children Ryan (Colleen) VanFleet of Albany, NY, Monica (Eric) Stein of Mumford, NY, Jake (Karla) Desso  of Lakewood, OH, and his precious grandchildren Logan, Shea, Clara, Nolan, Finley, and Felix who brought him much joy.

Jack was a huge Buffalo Bills fan. He loved to play cards, cribbage, golf and do Sudoku puzzles. Jack could be counted on to be the first to volunteer if anyone needed help. He enjoyed putting a smile on everyone's face and sending birthday-o-grams. He looked forward to spending winters in Myrtle Beach with family and friends. 

A Celebration of Jack's Life will be announced at a later date.

Jack/Dad/Poppa we love you and will always miss you. May you always have your toes in the water and your ass in the sand.
