Memories Timeline


  1. First met Jack in the early 80s in the 69 . Can not remember a time he did not have a smile on his face. I remember him winning the big screen TV at Belmont Race Track He truly was a good guy. Rest in Peace and God Bless you and your family.

  2. candleMay Eternal rest grant unto Jack O Lord,
    And let perpetual light shine upon him.
    May he rest in peace.
    May Jack’s family find comfort and peace
    in the light of your love dear Lord. Amen

  3. Jack, was my boss, teacher, mentor, and most importantly my friend. He was one of the most skilled supervisors of the greatest detectives in the world. He knew when to supervise and more importantly knew when to sit back and let everything unfold under his watchful eyes. Away from the the over abundance of knowledge he had to offer, he was one of the funniest individuals I ever knew. Made stressful work less stressful with him amazing humor and I consider myself one of the luckiest members of the NYPD Detective division to call him my Lou. Until we see each other again, please keep a club soda on ice for me.

  4. candleJack, I worked with you in the old 77th Precinct. You were a gentleman and simply a great guy with a great attitude. I want you to know that it was an pleasure and an honor to have worked with you. Rest in Peace my friend. Zeke

  5. Jack… You will forever be missed . You took my spin class 3x per week for the last 4 years: and through this pandemic you never missed an outside class with me as your instructor as well as your awesome wife Karen and Gina by your side each time… you guys kept me teaching my classes… by your dedication , perseverance and strength. We were some crew that I will truly miss and never forget !!! Love you guys and our special connection!!!

  6. Jack was a wonderful man who helped a lot of people. I met him 11 years ago. He always had a smile on his face and kind words of encouragement. He will be dearly missed. Rest in peace.

  8. My sincerest sympathies on the passing of your father / father in law
    May he rest in eternal peace. My thoughts and prayers are with you

  9. With our heartfelt sympathy to all the family and his many friends. Jack was the Best Man at our wedding and a very close friend to Alex. Then
    grew up together and stayed close throughout their entire lives.

    Rest In Peace dear Jack. 💕🙏🏼

  10. I am so sorry to hear that Jack passed away. Jack was a usher in my wedding. We became friends in the 50’s and had great times together. The last time we spoke he told me he would love to dance with me just one more time. We never did but I would have loved to. God Bless you Jack and RIP my old friend.

  11. Jack and I grew up together as boy-hood & close friends in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Many fun times in Tony’s, Sam’s & later Benny’s luncheonette on the cor. of 9th St. & 8th Ave. . But my most memorable connection with jack came when he called me one day around 1982 & asked for help with a personal problem. He worked very to overcome it & went on to become wonderful man, very much loved & a successful NYPD lieutenant in command of Detective Sqd. Rest in peace now my friend in the arms of God, your personal Higher Power. Jim Devine ( Ret’d. NYPD LT. as well).

  12. Jack was simply one of a kind, he was a gentleman, he was my squad commander, my mentor and most importantly my friend. I will miss him tremendously. Jack taught me what the books didn’t. He trusted my partners and I to get the job done, get the best results and not to bring any shame upon the unit, and we always did just that. Jack was responsible for overseeing many high profile investigations and it was his ability to lead that brought these cases to their successful conclusions. Jack was the epidemy of the squad commander, always dressed to the nine’s as they say, not a single hair out of place- who could ever forget that great head of hair! “Hollywood” and “Hammer” were his nicknames, his mere presence commanded respect. I will miss him dearly, I miss the times we all shared. I often think back about the crazy things we had to joke about, because dealing with certain things in a mature manner would just make oneself crazy.
    Jack I will miss you, I will pray for you and your family, and one day when it’s my EOT I’ll see you again.

  13. I was saddened to hear of Jack’s passing. I first met Jack when I was a rookie in 1990. Jack was the Squad Commander in the 113th precinct. Later in life our paths converged and diverged many times. I always benefited from hos sage counsel. Jack put his reputation on the line by endorsing me for an elite assignment. I know I made him proud. You see, I too retired a an NYPD lieutenant and, I can truly say I could not hold a candle to that great man.
