- Caregiver for his wife, Rifka, while she was in treatment for triple-negative breast cancer
Jack Coleman served as a caregiver for his wife, Rifka. Jack found ways to continually show up and support his wife despite added challenges due to the pandemic. During a time when limitations were placed on visitors’ presence, Jack found creative ways to remain present and ensure his wife never felt alone. He remained close with Facetime check-ins and window dance routines to keep Rifka’s spirits high. Jack stepped up in a major way to ensure that not only his wife was taken care of, but their six children as well.
