POST YOUR CONDOLENCE HERE
It is with sadness that I am notifying
you of the passing of Jack Wagner.
I have fond memories of Jack and know
that he is flying that orange airplane
in the sky with his glove on! May he rest in peace.
It is with profound sadness I hear about the loss of two great Pilots who steered us in the direction to safe journeys in the clouds. Captains Jack Wagner and Everett Terry were two good pilots. My Sincere Condolences to Both of the Families. May they Rest in PEACE. Sincerely, Olive Schneider

passing. God Bless him and His family.

Very, very sad news...
He was THE Captain in every sense
of the word.Only hope he has his Olives
and Cherries with him now...
(That's A Nassau Air Dispatch joke...
He would delay departure until
catering brought the required items !!)
Rest in Peace CAPT Jack.
From ALL at NAS Airport.

May dear Jack rest in peace - and I share
Margies fond memories of Jack flying with his
glove on.....what a lovely picture imagining
him flying That Orange Plane high up in the sky
with that great moustache, twinkle in his eyes
and teasing smile. He will not be forgotten by
anyone who ever met him.

So sorry to hear that, he was my favorite.
Concolences to the family from
ADELA ADDERLEY OSTERLOH, Nassau
Jack was like the father to us all. One of
the most difficult flights with IAB was
with Jack. We took the bus from Luxembourg
taking out one of the diverted flights from
Frankfurt and Jack had to make a tough
decision whether to fly or stay in Frankfurt,
because it was just snowing so much. At one
point we boarded the passengers and half were
Icelandic's but had to get the pax off the plane
again. That evening I followed him every-
where because I wanted to know the next step.
Eventually we were going to take-off.
Nicky (Vernica Ferguson) and I were the most
senior on that flight and we worked hard.
Captain Jack is still my hero because
he got me home safely.
May his soul rest in peace and let light
perpetual shine upon him. I salute him.
Especially expressed condolences
by Captain and Mrs. Emmett Hays,
Captain Gus Bacon, Canada
