Our beloved Husband, Father and Grandfather Daniel Jackson “Jack” Adams Jr., went home to be with the Lord on May 15, 2020. Jack was born in Phoenix, AZ on August 29, 1941, a twin to his sister Sandra whom he joined in Heaven. He was a lifelong resident of the State of Arizona and a former Army Captain and Vietnam Veteran. Jack served his Country proudly. Jack was a Realtor and Realtor Broker spending a good part of his career working for Continental Homes and Robson Communities here in the Valley. His co-workers affectionately dubbed him both “Action Jackson” and “Captain Jack”. Jack was dedicated to his family and his church, serving on the Board of his church for many years. Those who knew him knew he had a wicked sense of humor. His lifelong friend Jim Howe described him best as, “Captain America”, the guy who would do the hard right thing versus the easy wrong.

The East Valley JCC’s Lone Soldier Project will present Israeli comedian Joel Chasnoff, a former lone soldier, live from Israel, for a virtual comedy show at 2 p.m., on Sunday, Nov. 22.

Joel Chasnoff was born in Chicago, but volunteered for a combat unit in the Israeli Army when he was 23. He shared his experiences in his book The 188th Crybaby Brigade.

After his service, he stayed in Israel for a career as a comedian. He has performed on stages and screen in many countries, including USO tours of Japan and Korea, as well as over 1000 appearances in North America, Europe, and Israel.

The Lone Soldier Project of the EVJCC raises funds to provide support for lone soldiers, young men and women from around the world who voluntarily serve in the Israel Defense Forces. Proceeds from this performance will go to lone soldier centers in Israel and help lone soldiers celebrate Shabbat and holidays.

Tickets are $10. Purchase tickets at
