The character of Jack Ryan has been played on the big screen by Alec Baldwin in The Hunt for Red October, Harrison Ford in Patriot Games and Clear and Present Danger, Ben Affleck in The Sum of all Fears, and soon by Chris Pine in Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit.

Popular video games have also borne his name, the most memorable being Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six series.  Let’s all send out good vibes to his family and let them know he won’t be forgotten.
