Jack Snook

Almost 21 years ago, 14 days after what was supposed to be a routine heart procedure, Jack Snook opened his eyes and heard six fateful words from his wife, Joan.

“Jack, you’ve had a heart transplant.”

Thinking it was just a terrible dream, Snook shut his eyes and drifted back out of consciousness. When he awoke again, he heard the same news a second time.

This was no dream.

Before a botched surgical procedure changed his life forever, Snook served as fire chief at Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue. His family lived in Lake Oswego.
