My sincere condolences. I worked with Jack at UTD in the early 1970's on the NASA instruments. Jack was the electrical engineer and I was the mechanical engineer for the instruments. Jack was a good engineer and a pleasure to know and work with.
Larry Harmon, February 13, 2020 I am sorry for your family's loss. If I'm not mistaken, I believe I attended elementary school with Stuart in Richardson. Mike Scott, February 12, 2020 Younce Family - I was so sorry to hear of Jack’s move to Heaven! I’m so sorry to have lost touch these last years, but always loved the Younce family. Faith, I’m praying especially for you, that God will hold you close and comfort you! Sue Hansen, February 12, 2020 I have known Jack since he joined our Branch in the Central Research Labs at TI in the mid 60’s. I remember him as being very religious and fully committed to his church. He was a very hard worker who was able to complete the requirements for a PhD while holding a full time job. Our careers at TI took different directions, but I always treasured our friendship. My prayers are with Faith and their sons.
