Sadly, his career lasted only 2 years. Yet Jack left a lasting impression on the hearts and minds of those that were lucky enough to know him in person, as well as the fans that loved him onscreen. He was slated to be the next big action hero, but there was so much more to Jack Hexum than the celebrity we saw on TV every week.
Inside the star persona was a man with a heart of gold, one who personally corresponded with fans by writing notes on the back of scripts he was working on, or chatted on the phone with girls who pulled his number out of the phone book and called just to get the chance to hear that velvet bass voice on the other end.
Friends that knew Jack knew him as a true friend. If he saw that you were down, he'd work hard to cheer you up. He loved helping people whenever he could, even carrying flares in the trunk of his car in case he came upon an accident. If you needed it, and he had it, he'd give you the last $10 in his pocket. Just a sweet, humble, kind man, the type you could count on to support you no matter what.
There are many websites on the Internet that remember Jon-Erik Hexum the celebrity. Tenafly Guy would like to celebrate Jack, the man inside the star.
So come on in, get comfortable, take a look around.
