  1. This is sad news for me! Growing up in RI, Jack was a good friend. Not only was he a co-founder of the Rhode Island Soccer Officials Association with my father, Carmen Catalatzi & me but he also was a referee mentor to me. He was truly a friend to soccer! I will miss his smile and gentle demeanor.
