    I was super devestated to hear this news. Our party saw 2 Choppers hovering over Stevens yesterday around 2:30 and feared the worst, hope for the best. I was lucky enough to share many turns with JJ and not seeing his face around stevens will be very strange. I hope we as a ski community can remember this awesome man and continue his good work for the free ride tour. ++ Vibes to his family, really bummed about this.
    Just ski down there and jump off something for crying out loud!

    What a tragedy. I had the privilege of knowing Jim Jack. He was a good man who always had time and a smile for everyone. He will be sorely missed.

    well said, Sam. Went out skiing today with Athan, Dave and Max and had a few good Blackcomb laps to remember JJ by. I still can't beleive it.

    I will forever remember him as the most calming starter of any contest. Let ski together a long tome in the future my bearded man.

    Jim Jack, it was always a pleasure running into you at Stevens- and then later on the road at various venues and far off places. Still remember that huge smile and contagious energy. We had some great turns on a big powder day off the Ridge at Stevens a few years ago - you were media guiding some folks with Rudolph and Zbo and I were doing the usual road lappage, all of us covered in pow.

    You were One of the Best, most influential people in the sport. Been raising many a glass for you, Chris, and the others the past day. tears of whiskey were flowing in jackson and around the ski world. miss ya already.

    This is a great starthttp://icicle.tv/Video/Sport/Mission...atchee-Wa.html
    It wasn't the best day but I ran into Jim a couple times out in Microwave and he was totally stoked as usual.

    Sorry I guess you wanted a picture.

    There are a ton of photos on Jim's facebook page, it's public.

    The last time I saw Jim, we had breakfast at the Kirkwood Inn after the comp there. Don't remember if it was last year or the year before. But it was one of those laugh your ass off, have a beer after breakfast, reminiscing about so many people in the sport, hug upon leaving to go our separate ways starts to the day that, now, I still see him there at the bar. And I miss his energy greatly.

    I remember the athlete meeting at Alyeska after John Nicoletta died on the course. The words that Jim and Dak had to say that day were some of the most consoling and inspirational words anyone could have ever come up with, given the circumstances. They brought home so much of what the love for skiing and life in general is all about and really emphasized the brotherhood that exists amongst skiers who risk and live and sometimes die doing it. It was a fitting moment of mourning followed by a pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps-and-go-forward eulogy that ended with a scream shared by everyone there that cemented the determination that we all, as skiers, would honor ourselves and each other by continuing the tradition of skiing in the memory of those who had fallen. My next run will be for Jim Jack and the other brothers who have left us to carry on.
    We don't make the snow. We just make it more enjoyable.

    Had the pleasure of spending a days skiing in his company, an inspirational and rock solid man full of positive stoke for the mountains.

    RIP Jim

    BTW, I'm in Utah for a couple of days with the family. We'll be skiing BCC tomorrow and Thursday before heading home for more kid skiing events. If anyone wants to raise a glass or make some turns in his honor, feel free to get in touch and we'll figure it out.

    Remembrance and Celebration of the lives of our good friends will begin @ 6pm today at the Leavenworth Ski Hill with a torchlight parade, bring a headlamp! Whether you knew any of these incredible people or not I would urge anyone with means to come to the Leavenworth/Stevens Pass area this week/weekend to help us remember our friends. The community could use every available reinforcement. We have some very big shoes to fill...
