It's the end of an era at Shriners International.
The Tampa Imperial Shrine headquarters has announced the death yesterday of Jack Jones, longtime Imperial Recorder and a Past Potentate of the national governing body. In addition to 36 years as recorder, he also served a year as Imperial Potentate, and five as Executive Vice President.
Despite being confined to a wheelchair, Jack was seemingly everywhere you looked at national Masonic and Shrine gatherings. Across those decades of leadership roles since he first took office in 1979, he saw sweeping changes throughout the entire fraternity.
Requiescat in pace.
