  1. For the Anderson Family:

    Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you in this time of sorrow.

    I played golf with Jack at KickingBird Golf Club many times since 2003. He was a great golfer who always played by the rules. He loved to shot better than his age and did so over 150 times. If I complained after hitting a shot in the sand or the rough he would just tell me don’t hit it there. He made me better golfer and I will always appreciate that.

    He truly loved OSU football and basketball and we had many conversations after the games no matter whether they won or lost.

    A true friend who will surely be missed.

  2. For the last 12 or 13 years…..every Wednesday night at 600pm I sat next to Jack at choir practice (unless OSU was playing) and it always brightened my life to open the door and see he and Juliene already there. He was full of life, told the best stories, and to watch
    him gazing at his beautiful wife….you couldn’t help but smile….he so loved and so admired Juliene….and it showed. He will be missed so much at Chapel Hill United Methodist…..I know now he is singing in the heavenly choir…….we have all been blessed to have had the chance to have Jack in our lives……my thoughts and prayers are with you Juliene and your entire family

  3. Jack sat next to my Dad in the choir at Chapel Hill before my daddy passed away in 2009. I was an alto. They were in the bass section. When I would look back they looked innocent however, those two Ken Witten and Jack Anderson were having great time and giggle like two school girls. Sometimes I just went back to get in on the fun. They loved sitting next to each other.
    When my daddy passed away every Sunday Jack would come to me and check on me to make sure without saying a word that I was ok.
    Jack was a beautiful man who lived his life following the call of his master
    Jesus Christ.

    There was never a Jack without the beautiful and lovely and gentle Juliene.
    God Bless you and your whole family. My prayers are with you.

    Sincerely with Love. Cyndy Witten Janssen

  4. Juliene and Family –

    I was so sorry to hear about Jack. Our prayers are with you all. May the Lord surround you with his love, comfort and peace.

    In Christ’s love – Sharon (Haxton) Green

  5. At this time of need may Jehovah, the God of all comfort be with the family. Psalms 147 : 3 says ” He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds ” I hope these words bring peace to your hearts.
