BOSTON (CBS) – The Red Sox Sunday night issued a statement with comments from team executives on the death of Manager of Red Sox Productions/Game Operations Jack Lanzillotti, who was killed with his girlfriend, Jessica Campbell, when they were struck by a car in the Back Bay Saturday night.

Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino
“Jack has been an important, respected, and beloved member of our organization for the past seven years. His poise under pressure and good-humored manner helped us deliver consistently outstanding results.  We are all grief-stricken, and we send our deepest sympathies and condolences to Jack’s and Jessica’s families.”

Vice President/Fan Services and Entertainment Sarah McKenna
“Jack loved the Red Sox organization, and the Red Sox organization loved him. He was our go-to guy, someone you counted on to handle a tremendous work load, and someone you relied upon to use good judgment no matter the urgency or the hour. We are crushed. We have lost a dear and dedicated friend.”

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.”
