   Jack was born in Toledo, Ohio on November 25, 1926 and moved to Manteca in 1962 where he made an impact on the community that lasts to this day. After serving in the United States Army Air Corp, he went on to work as an industrial relations manager at Libbey Owens Ford Glass Company. Jack was instrumental in many projects that directly benefited the citizens of Manteca including the 120 Bypass, The SHARP Unit, the creation of Woodward Park and countless Crab Feeds and activities benefiting the Boys and Girls Club. Jack was a member of the Manteca Hall of Fame and served on the City Council for 24 years and was the Mayor of Manteca. Jack was an excellent delegator and master list maker. Regardless of what people thought of his politics or the way he went about getting things done, he was effective and driven. Jack has a lengthy resume of committees, community events and volunteer activities. He will not only be remembered for what he contributed to Manteca, but will also be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and huge fan of his evening cocktail, Jack Daniels.
