Jack first came to the Pittsfield Family YMCA in 1980 in need of a place to stay. The Y welcomed him into our residential program. Jack also became an employee for the Y, working in several roles before retiring in 2005. Since his early years with the Y, Jack’s interest in contributing to the community drew him into volunteerism. He served as a youth sports coach for the Y’s baseball and basketball leagues and as a helping hand for the Y’s special events. Through coaching, Jack has helped children develop their skill sets through learning the fundamentals of sports, all the while instilling the values of “sportsmanship, attitude and teamwork.”
