I met Mike about six months after I started practicing law in 2004. He was with another defense firm and we became friends "on the circuit." I learned a lot from Mike while I practiced alongside him. We e-mailed back and forth a few times after he was no longer with Kurowski, and our kids went to the same preschool. I am shocked by the loss of this kind man, and I am so profoundly sorry for your loss, Jackie,

To the family of Michael Tackett, I am so stunned and so saddened to hear of the loss of Mike. I worked with Mike at Allstate Insurance Company. He had a great sense of humor and made the work day a bit brighter. I remember him always telling stories about Ethan. And I remember him calling to tell us about the birth of his daugter. He was a very proud father. Please know that thoughts and prayers are with your family at this very sad time.

I have many fond memories of Mike from our days as students at SJC...staying up late talking while he was working security, encounters in Gallagher Hall, etc. But what I will remember the most is watching him with his family at Homecoming and other SJC events. My thoughts are with Jackie, Ethan and Lauren. God Bless.
