"The last two days have been filled with great emotion and personal reflection," Reggie Jackson said in a statement released by the Yankees. "The relationship I shared with The Boss is one that both heartens and comforts me during this difficult time. He meant so much to so many people, and I will always cherish him as a leader, a winner, and a friend. ... I am taking this time to reflect on the enormous and lasting imprint he made within the game of baseball, throughout the Yankees organization, and in my life."
