In passing away of our dear friend Jack Lim, we lost a great person whose dedication to his family and the other family the community at large is something needs to experienced rather been told. A wonderful person that he is, he left an indelible image and legacy that will be there for a long time, especially with those who had the opportunity to be with him and others especially the PEF Union members for whom he did the best. I consider myself to be lucky to have a long association with Jack Lim, whose high ethics, leadership and principles was a great lesson to be learnt. As a Council Leader and Executive Board member of PEF Division 240, he left a great legacy for every Union member to follow. I personally feel that it is a huge personal loss for me and truly regret not able to see him in the recent days as he was always there for others. That is Jack Lim whose love and affection for fellow friends and even a stranger is always unquestionable. I keep him and his family in my prayers and wish his good, angel like soul, to rest in peace. May God be with him as he was always there for others. Radhakrishna Mohan, NYSIF and PEF Division 240 Executive board.

I was saddened by the news of Jack's passing and my sincere condolences go out to his family. Jack was a very good person and a hard worker when he held the office of President of Chapter 9 PEF Retirees. Jack help me become more involved in the PEF Retirees and helped me run and become elected as the current Regional President of the PEF Retirees. Jack will be sorely missed by the retirees that he has informed and helped over the years.

I was so sad to learn this terrible news. My Deepest Sympathy goes to his family and loved ones. I remember Jackie growing up on Villa Avenue, and always was in awe of his abilities. Jackie was a great athlete as well, and everyone loved him. Now you are up in heaven with the rest of the Villa boys. May you always Rest in Peace. It's not goodbye, but we'll see one another again. NOW, PLAY BALL!

I was so sad to hear of Jack’s passing. I met Jack many years ago when I started coaching softball. You couldn’t help but notice Jack when he was umpiring a game. He was all class. He cared about doing the best job he possibly could and he cared about every player and coach. When you saw Jack walking to your field with a mask in his hand, you knew it was going to be a good day. I read a quote where Jack said, he never called a perfect game. That’s true, he never called a perfect game, he called a lot of them. Go with God my friend.

I was saddened to hear of Jack's passing. He was a great colleague, honored veteran, and an all-around good guy. His dedication to the veterans with whom he worked was greatly appreciated. His quick smile and friendly, compassionate attitude will be greatly missed. My deepest condolences to his family and friends as I keep Jack and all of you in prayer.

I'll never forget Jack Lim. I was very fortunate to be his co-worker. But more than that he Was a friend. He was very active on things he believed in to help other people. He was a military veteran and he organized "Vets for Vets", an organization for the State Insurance Fund veterans that would meet every month to discuss matters of interest to veterans. Sometimes he had guest speakers. Once he introduced to us Captain Paul Bucha, who earned a Congressional Medal of Honor in the Vietnam war. I used to run in the New York City Marathon. He once met me at the finish line where he posed for pictures with me, one of which was published in the monthly State Fund newspaper. When I was about to retire, he helped me with the documents I needed to benefit from a deal the State had for veterans. He retired from the State Insurance Fund the same day I did. He continued to be active in the PEF retirees organization as long as his health held up.
