That eulogy by George Bolton is poignant.  He notes so many things he is sorry Jess will not live to see, the current 3yo's and other youngsters that Jess bred.   The legacy of his breeding philosophy he leaves behind but does not live to see himself.

It seems that Barbara Banke and his children will carry on.

Think you will be able to find and post that photo of you and your uncle with Jess Jackson?

That's a very nice article The Bloodhorse has out on Jess Jackson.  The memory wall, too.  Thanks for mentioning it.

My sincere condolences to the family. He was truly one of those people who inspire.

My personal JJ memory is drinking Rachel's pinot noir and blogging with you guys on a special night in January 2010 when his beautiful girl was voted Horse of the Year.  I say he loved her as much as we do.  I will be offering a toast to him with one of his wines at our family dinner Sunday.

Cindy I loved your beautiful words on FB to Stomestreet very well said. He was a wonderful man and while he had critics I think he was good as an owner and good for the sport of horse racing.

Thanks Amy.  I really admired him and am more than a little sad at the news of his death.  Really going to miss him.  I do look forward to following he progress of the breeding program he has started with Stonestreet.  I am hoping it lives on.
