superstar Jerry Lewis, as his personal assistant, as Editor
of a San Diego newspaper and magazine, and as an Emmy
winning writer of the acclaimed television series "Desperate
Still, Jac has often been in the right place at the right
time. His three thousand foot fall into a freshly plowed
field was all about timing.
He describes years spent on the road with Jerry Lewis in
such spirited detail, you'll almost believe the memories are
your own. Jac recalls meeting Robert Kennedy in the very
spot where a week later Sirhan Sirhan took the candidate's
life. He recalls the emotional moment when Jerry Lewis and
Dean Martin reunited after twenty years of silence. He
recalls a time when three martini lunches were the norm and

Jac delivers these sometimes funny, sometimes sad and always
heartwarming stories from and "everyman's" perspective. In
the end, What I Learned on the Way Down is an unexpected
treasure of stories told by someone who humbly admits he was
just along for the ride.
