I remember this man in the 50's on TV

Then I saw him in the 60's overseas

The 70's he was selling things on TV to better your health

The 80's and 90's I saw him on late night TV everywhere

Well, I guess I saw this guy my whole life.

Good job, Jack...say hi to my dad..Al Green

Interesting guy. Ahead of his time fitness-wise, and probably got a lot of folks in better shape. Gotta say his Peter Pan outfits were a bit fruity though!

I always enjoyed his positive attitude. The glass was always half full with Jack. I forget when it was. I think in the early 80's he swam with a bunch of boats attached to him in a strange body harness with like 50 people through like shark infested waters hand cuffs and foot shackles. It was pretty cool for the time.. Sort of like Evel Knievel or something..anyway I was a impressionable young lad at the time. He was a old geezer then? Like at least 60..

I honestly thought he would have lived to be like a 110 or so. Must have worked himself to death with over working out..any way..96 is a long life rest in peace..
