Nail was the Youth Ministries director for the Chesapeake Conference from 1977-1990.  The Nail family was active in Pathfinders and at the Atholton Church in Columbia, Md. In their retirement, Jack and his wife, Ann, were faithful supporters of God’s work and Adventist Education.

Jack is survived by Ann and their four children—Lynda Feldmann, Jacquie Elliott (still a member at Atholton), Ted Nail and Jon Nail—and their families. A memorial service is planned for Sabbath, May 2, at 2 p.m., at Tullahoma Seventh-day Adventist Church, 908 Cedar Lane, Tullahoma, Tennessee. Church phone (931) 455-9816.Jack Nail 1

Jack was an inspiration and tremendous help to me when I "inherited" pathfinders at the Columbia Union in the "80's. He is remembered with fondness for the great times we had as a Columbia Union team.
