Ad Feedback

Jack Kemp was remembered, Friday, as a great NFL quarterback, statesman and family man.

Kemp passed away May 3 after a battle with cancer.  His memorial service was held Friday in Washington, D.C. at the National Cathedral.

Politicians who called him friend along with family and friends all had different and fond memories of the man known for his conservative economic policies that helped pull the U.S. out of a recession in the early 1980s.

He's also remembered for his genuine concern for America's poor.

Kemp put his politics into practice throughout his career, which started in Congress and also included serving in the White House and a being a vice-presidential nominee for the GOP in 1996.

Kemp leaves behind Joanne-- his wife of 50 years, two sons, two daughters and 17 grandchildren.
