I am so sorry to hear of Jacks death. I am the person who bought your lovely townhouse in Annen Woods. I bought it because I could tell how lovingly you and Jack took care of it. Thank you. Again I am so sorry

In 1980 Jack and I were elected officers in the Baltimore County General Hospital Foundation. We served in various positions together. We were a team. My success was due to Jack's leadership and commitment. I regret not staying in touch with Jack. He was my mentor. coach, best friend and confidant. His smile would warm the room. I am blessed to have so many memories with Jack. I hope his family and friends are also blessed with the memories of the joy he has brought to them.

Dear Judy & the Torner family. What can I say? I always loved seeing Jack's smiling face & easy going attitude. Irv & him were in the JCC's together, we served on the board of Balto County Hosp & then he became my boss at SSA. I always enjoyed going to dinner & than playing cards. His passing marks the end of an era. He will be very missed. All my love & condolences.

Recalling Jack from high school and early adult days brings huge smiles to our faces. He was among the most beloved, kind, funny, resourceful, social & community-oriented people we ever had the pleasure of knowing, and, although we hadn't seen him for many, many years, we thought of him often.

We are deeply sorry for your loss1 of this truly remarkable mensch and hope that sooner rather than later, your tears of sorrow at his loss will turn to tears of joy from your cherished memories.

Sending my sincere condolences on the recent passing of Jackie Torner. I knew Jackie, growing up in Baltimore and our family was very friendly with his mother, our dear Aunt Millie. Mostly have very fond memories of Aunt Millie and her wonderful sense of humor and big smile and always laughing. She loved telling stories about her son Jackie and of course Judy, and then her granddaughters. May his memory be forever a blessing .

To Judy and Family,
Steve told me he first met Jack when he was a teenager, working at a resort in New York State, where Jack would visit with his Mom. Later on, they were members of the Randallstown Jaycees, and I had the good fortune to work with Jack at SSA. I hope you have enjoyed your retirement years together—I know he will be missed.
