We are saddened, today, by the loss of Hollywood producer and friend to Sayoc Kali, James Jacks.
James was responsible for such movies as Dazed and Confused, Raising Arizona, Tombstone, and The Mummy franchise. He also produced several other early Cohen Brothers movies, as well as The Hunted, the fight scenes for which were designed by Sayoc Kali (Tuhons Tom Kier and Rafael Kayanan).
Many Sayoc Kali instructors knew Jim and enjoyed his great stories.
A quote from former partner, Sean Daniel:
Here’s to Jim Jacks. Nobody loved movies more. Passionate, loyal, generous, accomplished, noble, caring, heavily armed, creative, dare I say obsessive on occasion. A good man, a good friend, a wonderful partner, a loving son to his family. You will be missed.
