A 1959 graduate of Zanesfield-Monroe High School, Jack participated in baseball, football and basketball. He attended The Ohio State University and Franklin University. After serving in the U.S. Army, Jack worked for Mary Rutan Hospital and the Logan County Highway Department, but his true joy was operating the family farm, which was recently recognized as a Century Farm by the state of Ohio. He was a member of East Liberty Masonic Lodge 247 and a 32nd degree of both Scottish and York Rite bodies. He was a member of Zanesfield American Legion Post 599, and was inducted into the Benjamin Logan Athletic Boosters Hall of Fame last February. He enjoyed spending time with his family and attending high school athletic events.
