5. An Ode by @John Funk: There’s a handful of professional colleagues you encounter over the course of many years in your work life that stand out above the rest. There’s a saying among those who experience success in an organization that it usually comes because you are benefiting from the incredible people that toiled and crafted the work and processes before you. That saying is that we are standing on the shoulders of the giants who came before us.
Ironically, I have never met him in person, so I don’t know how tall he actually is. But to me, he is a giant in the Atlassian Community world. There’s also the fable of Jack and the Beanstalk where Jack triumphs over the Giant at the end of the story. In this case, the Giant triumphs, and his name is Jack.
Always patient, always intent on helping others – whether solving a problem or to help train them with his vast level of knowledge. Thanks, buddy, for your friendship, your mentorship, and your perseverance.
Congratulations to Jack Brickey on reaching Level 10!!
4. An Ode by @LarryBrock: I’ve known Jack for many years, and he’s always been one of the most caring and kindhearted individuals I’ve known. He leads by example both at his job and in the Atlassian Community and is always looking for ways to help others succeed. We miss him here in Austin and I always look forward to seeing him at the Team conference or any other chance I get. Cheers to you, Jack - your selection is well deserved and we are all very fortunate to have you in our tribe.
3. An Ode by @Susan Hauth _Jira Queen_: I first met Jack by virtually tripping over him as we answered the same questions on the new Atlassian Community back in 2017. He reached out to me on Linked In and we virtually met. We had an opportunity to meet twice in 2018 at a Teams Event in Austin in March and in Barcelona at Summit in September. He had such a sharp rise in his contribution to the online community that by September I had nominated him to the Community CAB. The picture above is the CAB breakfast in Barcelona. Jack quickly became one of my dearest friends in the Atlassian Community and we were inseparable at the 2019 Summit in Vegas. Jack is one of the most thoughtful, kindest, smart, and patient humans I know which is why it's no surprise that he's such a huge success in the Atlassian Community. Hugs from your friend, Susan.
2. An Ode to Jack by @Brittany Joiner: Jack is always sharing excellent tips and advice, and is super well engaged. So glad to have him as a fellow community leader, and he deserves so much celebration for this milestone!!
1. An ode to Jack by @Monique vdB: Jack Brickey is the embodiment of what an Atlassian Community Leader is (which is one of the reasons we feature him on our page about the program). His impressive community stats showcase his expertise and his generosity, but they can’t begin to capture his warmth, empathy, good humor, and kindness. Jack is one in a million, and there aren’t enough ways to tell him how much the entire community team appreciates and loves him. Congratulations, Jack! -Mo
Shower him with lots of love, the same way he does ❤️ !!!!!!
