The Yale Class of 1967 notes this month report the passing of our long lost Classmate Jack Waltz:
"...Alas, the rest of the news is as sad as it gets: the death of Jack Waltz. Jack, who died Dec. 2, 2008, from liver and brain cancer, was captain of our 1967 tennis team - the last Bulldog tennis team to go undefeated - and one of the greatest tennis players in Yale history.

"I remember our last match up at Harvard in windy, cold conditions when we held on to beat Harvard's top doubles team to clinch our undefeated season," says his doubles partner, Mike Brooks. "The final point was Jack's service ace that cleaned the center line of the deuce court. He always played best when the pressure was on." Jack went on to become a successful tennis pro in California, first at at Pebble Beach and then in Marin County. Unfortunately, his last years were marred by severe diabetes that caused him great pain, ultimately requiring the amputation of his right leg. But you never heard a peep of complaint from him. "His spirit was remarkable to the last day," says his longtime friend, Charlie Workman, who played on Yale's 1954 tennis team. "He often spoke of his love for Yale and his classmates."
