Friends remember Jack Goodman

Thursday, November 10, 2022 by Jo Clifton

Former Council Member Jackie Goodman is inviting friends to stop by a park near their home this Saturday from 2:30 to 5 p.m. to share memories of her late husband Jack Goodman, who died in August at the age of 76. Jackie wrote: “Jack and I decided long ago we wanted no funeral-burial-testimonials, no folks in church duds having to sit in rows of pews or chairs, almost requiring sadness. It is sad for me and for others that Jack has passed on though, and now that his ashes are safely with me, on the afternoon of his birthday, we will mark that his life happily touched ours, planning a ‘gently guided’ autumn afternoon, as free from what he didn’t want as possible.” Friends are invited to share memories of Jack, an environmental advocate who served on the board of directors of the Barton Springs/Edwards Aquifer Conservation District for 22 years, leaving office in 2012. The job was a labor of love, paid nothing and offered no retirement benefits. Jackie Goodman served on City Council from 1993 to 2005, including a stint as mayor pro tem.
