John Francis Pastorius III aka Jaco
December 1, 1951 - September 21, 1987
I, Ingrid, married Jaco in July of 1979. We had our ceremony of commitment
on top of temple 3 in Tikal, Guatemala, amongst the ancient vibrations,
the raw jungle, as well as the fluttering of hummingbirds overhead.
Our twin sons, Julius and Felix were born in 1982.
Jaco and I
legally broke up in 1985, though emotionally, and spiritually
I remained attached to him, his music, and now his soul.

This site was initially a project Felix and Julius had started,
while in the process of learning the web-making format.
In December of 2000, together with their brother and sister John and Mary,
from Jaco's marriage with Tracy, they launched the official site at
Rather than closing down this loving project, Julius and Felix gave it to me.
With encouragement by
who had the very first Jaco site on the web,
I learned, and am still learning HTML and have made it what it is today.
A special thanks to John Sanna, who has been encouraging as well as
a great asset to the Jaco community.
This is an expression of eternal love for Jaco, but it wouldn't be what it is without you All.
One of Jaco's many attributes was his genuine love and interest for all people.
Therefore, IN HIS NAME and SPIRIT, I desire this site to be a stepping stone
and CYBERNEST for Family, Friends, and You.
Feel free to contact me if you would like to see anything added, or corrected.
There are approximately 300 pages, over 1100 photos on this site, some are 'hidden',
and much more will be added along the way. So take your time, and enjoy!
Here is the new Enter page, which has a Flash Intro by Julius,
while I am keeping the original, honoring Felix's and Julius' work.
Welcome to my View of a Secret!
