Jack's  favorite sport was football; Jack loved the New York Giants.

His favorite player, Victor Cruz, wore his name on his cleats during Sunday's game.

Victor Cruz said, "To have my jersey, and to be his favorite player so much that they want to bury him with it, it was unreal. So I told them I was completely honored."
