Jack died of pancreatic cancer March 11, 2006, in his Seattle home, surrounded by his wife and two daughters.
His preparatory schools were St. George's School in Newport, R.I., and King's School, Bruton, Somerset, England. At Princeton, Jack was a member of the freshman cross-country team and of the rugby team in subsequent years. He majored in history and was a member of Quadrangle Club and Whig-Clio.
Jack did graduate work at the University of Washington and Stanford University, and spent most of his career involved with Japan, where he was a businessman, teacher and author of Gaijin Kaisha: Running a Foreign Business in Japan. He served as treasurer of the Japan Society in New York, and was a guest lecturer on Japanese subjects at the University of Washington's schools of law, business, and international studies. After retiring, he remained involved with students through Princeton-in-Asia, of which he was a trustee, and actively traveled, skied, fished, and played tennis.
To his widow, Keiko; daughters Shannon Lee Lucansky and Sayako Huddleston; and grandchildren, the class offers its sincere condolences.
