Every so often I would search the net to see if I could find out where Jack was and what he was doing. I was so sorry to see that he had passed. In spring 1970 I was lucky enough to student teach under him at John Marshall school in South Bend. 43 years later I am still teaching, and I owe so much of what I have been and what i have experienced and what I have learned as

I played for Coach Disler at Lasalle HS in the mid 1980's. He was the first organized basketball coach I had - a lot of good memories of that time, and of Coach Disler. Condolences to his family - God speed Coach.

Jack Dishler was my Teacher, Coach and most of all, my friend. Mr. Dishler didn't like any food or gum in his class room but Eric & I always had peanuts, we used to put the shells under another students desk. When Coach Dishler was the JV Basketball Coach, I remember he would bring Blaine to the games and practices helping me with my duties as manager for both Varsity & JV squads. You will be missed Mr. D. My heart and prayers go out to your. God Bless

At his services he had a naval guard salute, complete with a military

I along with Mr. Streich who posted earlier had Jack as a teacher in 8th grade and he too coached me in our 8th grade basketball team at John Marshall in South Bend. Nobody could motivate youth the way Jack did. He taught us to be humble in victory and gentlemen in defeat. He will be remembered as someone who made a difference in many peoples' lives. May his memory be eternal and coach, don't stop running that Memphis State

I wanted to pay tribute to a wonderful teacher and coach. Coach was our 8th grade basketball coach and teacher at John Marshall in South Bend, IN. He was one of the best coaches I ever had. He loved the game, his students and players. I will never forget his pre-game and halftime speaches in the locker room. He really got worked up ! I am sure the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame has an opening for such a great person.
