He grew up on a family dairy farm near Pleasant Valley, NY, attended local schools and graduated from USMA, West Point with the Class of 1956. His Army experience includes duty as an Infantry Officer, Paratrooper, Army Pilot, Staff Officer with 4 years assigned to the 101st Airborne Division at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. After the military, Jack was employed as a Project Engineer with Procter and Gamble in Cincinnati, Ohio. He built the first Downy pilot plant and installed the first Pampers test market line. He returned to Dutchess County and joined the DeLaval Separator Company as a sales engineer, and after a succession of challenging assignments became President in 1975. Following DeLaval, Jack was associated with several local businesses as a board member or owner, including Standard Gage, Fargo, Dutchess Bank, Chief Electronics, and Discount Data Products. In retirement, his interest in local history afforded an opportunity to write a history column for two local newspapers and publish several articles for the Dutchess County and Rhinebeck Historical Societies. This is his second published book on local history.
