Jim Ross updated his blog over at with thoughts on the passing of Jack Brisco. Below is an excerpt from the blog:

"Jack passed away Monday morning at the at of 68 as a result of complications after under going heart surgery a week or so ago."

"I got to know Jack on a more personal level when I went to work in WWE in 1993 as I worked closely with Jack’s brother Jerry in the talent relations department. Jerry recruited our best ever signees from the amateur ranks. Plus, Jerry and I joined forces to sign both Chris Jericho and the Big Show with ‘in home’ recruiting visits in Tampa. Jerry became my closest confidant and with that came another blessing for me…getting to know, on a personal level, Jerry’s big brother, the great Jack Brisco."
