Remembering Jack Thompson
To Our Employees, Guests & Community,
It is with a heavy heart that we share the news that the owner of the Black Bass Hotel, Jack Thompson, passed away on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. He was 89 years old.
His focus was clearly on taking care of our employees and guests. His noted phrase being “We are not in the automotive and restaurant business, we are in the people business.” He cared deeply about the community that helped to make him a success. He was passionate about land conservation and the historic preservation.
Please say a prayer for him and make a toast in his honor. He will continue to shine his warm spirit on all of us.
We invite everyone to use this memorial website to share your thoughts and fond memories of him.
Laura Thompson Barnes
