Born in Joliet, living in Plainfield. Jack was a 1960 graduated of Joliet Township High School, also an alumni of Joliet Junior College, Southern Illinois University, and Northern Illinois University, where he majored in Education. His teaching career began at West View Junior High in Romeoville, continuing at Wheaton Central High School and the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn. He was a wonderful teacher and an inspiration to his students. Jack was an avid cyclist and sports fan especially for the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals. But his greatest joy was being with family and friends, and taking walks with Mocha. We will all miss his wonderful sense of humor, he made us laugh.
