Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Few people make a lasting impression on ones life . Even fewer accomplish this as a couple - and that’s Jack and Roz. They have been there for us as friends, extended family and many other themes of a relationship . Jack revelled in the game of life and we shall miss him as a man , friend and contributor to community

I had the good fortune of meeting and working with Jack years ago when I was with Tishman Construction. Simply put, Jack was the absolute go to guy in the lighting industry. No project is ever finished until all the lights are lit. He made darn sure we received what we need when we needed it. That relationship developed into a friendship that spanned more than four decades. You never needed to ask Jack for anything, he simply knew and without saying a word always extended a helping hand. I simply can't sugarcoat it, I'm going to miss my friend and am very grateful for the fond memories that I will always cherish.

Jack was a real life superhero, a larger than life figure who truly brought light to the world in so many ways. His spirit truly shines on. Love to Roz and the family. Jamie Metzl and Mallika Bhargava

When Roz and Larraine met in Law school they knew they would be life long friends. When Clive and Jack and Roz and Larraine got together it was laughs and stories all the time from 1976 until the present time. We celebrated the Zukerman's anniversaries - what parties those were - and ups and downs; health issues with Roz's parents - Clive loved them so and cared for them too as Orthopedic Surgeon; so many lovely dinners with the family; breaking the fast together; living through the house fire, living in the valley then back to the city - and Jack, the perennial entrepreneur and guru of the lighting business; Jack's career was always a source of never ending admiration; his book, and his stories - what stories those were! Jack and Roz always showed generous hospitality, supporting so many causes, people and communities - Jack we miss you and have wonderful memories of times together - there will never be another like you - you were one of a kind - a very special soul. Rest in peace dear friend. Larraine and Clive Segil

My deepest sympathies to Roz and the rest of Jack's family on losing such a treasure. I met Jack when he was a patient, but quickly saw him as a man with genuine concern and compassion for others, a desire to help in any way(s) that he could. For him philanthropy was not an act, but a blessing. I know he took great pride in his family - he shared so many stories of their successes. I also could see how much his lifelong love affair with Roz meant to him. He truly was an iconic figure, and an inspiration to myself and many who witnessed his example. For his family and all of us, may his memory be a blessing.
