From Jazz Guitarist and Friend Jeff Barone…sad news
In recent weeks Jack Wilkins was hospitalized with a serious blood infection. He has also been quietly dealing with kidney disease for the past four years. He is currently stage 4. A year ago Jack had an accident in his home which he was yet again hospitalized with a broken hip.
Though Jack has continued to play this entire time, Covid19 in particular has taken its toll on work opportunities. He’s dedicated his life to music and it has touched and influenced many. He has been through quite a bit these past few years. Jack is playing as well as ever but his ongoing medical costs are becoming challenging. He could really use some support. If you’re a friend or a fan please consider helping Jack through this difficult time.Jeff Barone
