From John Fritch:

Dr. Jack Kay passed away yesterday. I have been very fortunate to have two outstanding mentors in my education and career: Jack Kay and Donn Parson. In some ways, they were very different. In other ways, they were much the same. I have learned much from both of them.
I will forever be grateful to Jack for giving me--the kid from Palmyra who had never seen a debate--the chance to debate in college, the patience to let me develop as a debater, and the guidance to help me grow as a person. Without him, I am certain my life would have ended up much, much differently.
Largely because of Jack, I have never lost my desire to work with forensics. I can see the difference it makes in people's lives and how making this difference can be done while have a lot of fun.
At UNI, I have made few real contributions to the forensics program. Two of the things I have insisted on are a tribute to Jack (and at least one of those he borrowed from his coach, George Ziegelmueller): the 5 Ds and the Christmas party featuring Twas the Night Before Christmas. I will always make sure my students are aware of why I cherish those traditions.

I never knew Jack very well, but I do know that I owe him a debt because without him I wouldn't likley have had you as a coach and friend. I am sorry for your loss.

John, That was a wonderful tribute to a very kind and great man. Jack will be missed but his legacy will obviously live on through people like you. I hope that you can find peace in the happy memories. You and Brad will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am heart broken. Jack was my very first college coach as he was the GTA assigned to deal with me. He had a huge impact on my life.
