I remember John use to pick me up in his Model A (I think that is what it was) for Chemistry Class. I felt so special. What a great guy! Always had a smile on his face. Died way too young -
Jack died in 1974. He is buried at St Geeorge cemetery along side his wife Jan Schmitz Duller, I remember Jack as always smiling and in the best of moods most of the time.

I'm not sure of the actual date of Jack's dealth, but as I remember it, he lost a battle with some form of cancer. I few of our fellow graduates celebrated his life at a New Year's Eve party, that we held annually, that Jack and his wife at the time, attended. I agree with the other comments that Jack was a great friend, and passed away much too young. He was one of the first members of our graduating class that I remember passing away. I don't know if his children, or any family members, still reside in the Kenosha area.
Jack passed Dec 25, 1974. He was married to Jan Schmitz, who also passed Nov 1 2013. Don't believe he had any children. I know Jan's family......her brother Mike is a cousin of mine, who when Jan passed i was surprised to learn that Jack was her husband, a great guy who was willing to help anyone at anytime....sadly died too young. I think my earliest classmate death was Frank Urbanek, tragic Carol Beach auto accident. May they all RIP

Here is the list of those who died from Kenosha.
Like all who knew Jack I had a strong affection for him. From Lincoln jr on up he lived around the corner from me and we had many moments of merriment. Wally Davis knew jack fairly well and when Wally and I drove past jack’s childhood house Wally recounted that jack had passed away as a result of exposure to certain solvents from either his worklife or passion for automobile repair etc. As a chemist Wally had details about the solvents but I could not even pronounce them hence they have no place in my memory. I am certainly heartened to see such expressions of love for jack on this page.

I asked Jack to the Sadie Hawkins dance and yes we rode in his model A. What a treat! He was so fun and all smiles. The next day he came over for some reason. We sat out on the driveway and talked a long time. I have thought of him and that event quite a few times. It's like he emerged out of the mist and disappeared afterwards. No beginning. No end. Just that time in space.
