He was a 1961 graduate of Algonquin Regional High School prior to studying architecture at Rhode Island School of Design.

He found pleasure in visiting art museums and creating amazing work of his own through the art of pointillism. With an artistic eye, a talented architectural mind and a philanthropist’s view for a better world, Jack’s impact on his communities will be missed.
