"Conversations with Jack were an adventure. I don't think I'll ever know anybody with that level of intellect and that level of joy in conversation, and wanting to understand the world and do better for the world.

It wasn't just the paddle out in Santa Cruz. It was the paddle outs that occurred around the world. He was a worldwide figure. He was an ocean leader. He was a business leader. And that is what happened today. People paid honor to him, they appreciated him, and they felt the love that he felt for them."
