Jack Leasure does not have a step sister. Before writing an article about such a tragic event get all your facts straight. Investigate the situation before going to print.

"Concerned Reader"...

I wanted to ask what makes you think that Jack does not have a step sister? I think maybe you should get you facts straight before you run your mouth.

I say this because Jack did (fact) just loose a sister and step sister.

In an attempt to control rumors, Jack did have a step sister named Jennifer. The Sun News article was wrong in saying he lost a step sister AND a sister though. Michelle Ciaccia was Jennifer's step sister...Jennifer Leasure was Jack's step sister.Michelle had no relation to Jack.

Jennifer was Jack's half sister, and Michele was Jennifer's step sister (from her mothers second/current marriage)Thank you all for your cards , messages of support. Jack and Kelly were married last sunday July 20 and they are honeymooning in Mexico. We are all glad to have a close family as well as our faith to get us through this time.

I was out that night and started the same time of day Howard did and made the same run they did and went to the same bars they did all day.I made it back from the last bar they did not.When I woke the next morning at the marina 10 spots down from where they park with my phone ring with my friend telling me they heard there was a accident and poeple died he wanted to make sure it was nt me it was proceeded with about 10 more calls.You see I came in 10 minutes before the tragedy hit when I found out who it was my heart broke and I cried.I am sure I did not feel know where near the pain the families felt and my heart hurts for them.I wish there was some thing I could have done too change that day.I did not know them that well but I saw them all the time I walk by F2 and there not a day I dont think about them.
