It is with deep sadness that we inform you that Jack Thomas passed away last night after a long and brave battle with cancer. Jack started his career with New York Life in 1978. He was a mentor to many of us, and a great friend to all he came into contact with. He was also a tremendous family man.
Jack was also NAIFA-WA membership chair in 99/00! His goal was 2000 in 2000! I think we got to 1500?
During his 35 years with NYLIC he went to Africa (Uganda) twice to build orphanages for the children displaced by the wars. He personally raised over $100k for materials and brought friends from his church to help with the construction.
Jack was also a consistant leader in the NYLIC Tacoma GO. many times "THE" leader of all the agents.
Jack is survived by his wife Sandra, his daughters Kindra and Calli, his son-in-law, Scott and his grandchildren, Jaden and Dylan who bravely supported Jack in his fight. The Thomas’ are a wonderful and caring family. Please join me in offering them our sincere condolences at this difficult time.
