Jack was a dear and supportive friend throughout my career. His thoughtfulness was perfectly illustrated by his response to a letter I sent him while I was a doctoral student - I had a couple of questions about the WISC and knew of his expertise as a diagnostician. His response ran to two pages - practically unheard of, much less in the case of a lowly graduate student he had never met. Years later, I had the honor of co-presenting with him at ILA. Jack also offered very sage advice in how to navigate relationships with educational publishers.  He will be sorely missed, personally and professionally, by so many. Shane Templeton, Ph.D.Foundation Professor Emeritus of Literacy StudiesUniversity of Nevada, Reno
