  1. Dave and I were sadden to hear about Jack passing. Dave and Jack were first year teachers together. They both had a love for golf and traveled to North Carolina with Rick White for golfing. Both also coached football together under Al Rowe. Many laughs and good times together. Dave spent many evenings at Jacks home sharing dinner with his family.
    Jack Ogle to me was one of the best teachers I had while attending Lowell High School. He had a way of engaging his students into his lessons that made you want more. . He totally gave me a love for history that I still have to this day.
    I wish we would have had more time to spend with his family. We so enjoyed his 70th birthday party at Rick and Robin whites.
    We will continue to keep his family in our prayers. ♥️
