In remembrance: John A. ‘Jack’ Hughes, Jan. 21, 1947 – Jan. 23, 2014

January 23, 2014

The NASC is very sorry to announce the death of Jack Hughes, past chairman of the NASC Board of Directors. Jack was an integral leader in the sports tourism industry and will be deeply missed by everyone who had the pleasure to know and work with him.

After a brief and courageous battle with cancer, Jack passed away in his sleep on January 23, 2014 at Haven Hospice in Gainesville, Florida with his loving and dedicated wife Janice at his bedside. Please keep his family in your prayers and thoughts during this difficult time.

A Memorial Service will be at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church at 10am on Saturday, January 25th.

Jack’s wish was to send your support to the Gainesville Fisher House, in lieu of flowers:
