As part of his graduate work at Johns Hopkins University, Jack had to survey various associates. Some of their comments are listed below.
Positions and titles were at the time of comment submission.
I have been honored to have worked with Jack for over ten years in our chosen profession, wildlife law enforcement. During this period together, we have apprehended many poachers from illegal goose hunters to felony conspirators making large amounts of money laundering illegal fish. As a federal wildlife agent, what I most appreciate about Jack's work is his dedication and high level of commitment to catching poachers, his decision making abilities, and his leadership skills.
Jack poses many skills that a good leader must have for which I appreciate. First, he is an effective communicator both interpersonally and to the overall flow of needed information throughout his agency and other organizations. He often effectively communicates his position not only with wildlife officers but with agency managers, biologists and even non-government organizations to name but a few. Second, Jack's networking skills is one of his strongest assets. He can initiate and deepen relationships with others which can result in building a team that has achieved impressive results. An example of this is his work in changing the entire commercial fishing regulatory system for the Chesapeake Bay. In order to affect this he often works with those who have a different opinion or motive.
