A tribute to Jack Poole
I was very sorry to wake up early this morning only to learn about the passing of Jack Poole. I first met Jack in 1981 when he headed up Daon, and I worked for Narod. Although we were never really friends, I always had a great admiration and respect for him and his accomplishments. Jack made things happen....the Daon Building, VLC Properties, Concert Properties and ultimately the Olympics in Vancouver. He was a mentor to a lot of people who went on to do very well in life. My thoughts are with his family and very close friends, especially Dave Podmore who worked so closely with him over many years. Thanks Jack.
