Director of Red Sox Productions John Carter
“Jack had an encyclopedic knowledge of Red Sox footage. We would say, ‘We need a shot of Johnny Pesky hitting a single,’ and he would say, ‘I know right where that is.’ There is no way to describe how much we will miss him – professionally and personally. Our hearts are broken, and we share our sorrow with his family and with Jessica’s family.  It’s just incomprehensible.”
