He was a native of Elmira, N.Y. His father, Edward Louis Lowman, was in the Class of 1913. Graduating from Deerfield Academy in 1944, Jack served in World War II in the 69th Infantry Division that made its famous juncture with Russian troops at Torgau, Germany.
At Princeton he majored in history and was a member of Tower Club. Jack roomed with Bill Campbell, Roger Lyon, Ed Lawrence, Bruce Huber, Pas Mitchell, and Jim Bulkley, also known as the Pyne Hall Club Rubo.
Jack was an active community leader. After 26 years as an investment banker he changed careers and devoted his next 12 years to teaching history and coaching tennis at Elmira’s Notre Dame High School, which he found truly rewarding. About his college years, Jack wrote, “I count my experience at Princeton as one of the highlights of my life.”
Jack is survived by his wife of 68 years, Alice, known as Tody; three children; and four grandchildren including James Burgess ’09 and Edward Burgess ’07.
