Comments: Jack said he really admired Kevin, and found the fact that he managed to play ball while enduring painful insulin shots daily quite impressive.
Though he never found the time to socialize with Kevin outside of class or away from the team, he still believed his teammates liked Kevin. He could not think of any person who would want to do Kevin harm, let alone kill him.
He also said that he had heard that someone plagiarized Kevin's work and that Kevin had endured a lot of grief over it.
Jack said he last saw Kevin at practice on Thursday. He added that he was with his girlfriend the weekend Kevin disappeared.
