Jack died July 26, 2019.
He was briefly a college undergraduate at Northwestern and Pittsburgh before accelerating through Princeton, where he was in Triangle and in Tower Club. At the close of World War II, Jack was in the Army Signal Corps and was with the first invading troops crossing the Rhine over the Remagen Bridge to invade Germany. Jack came back in 1949 for a formal Princeton graduation, with honors in economics.
Jack went to Harvard Business School for two years. Soon thereafter he became an account executive at the McCann Erickson and D’Arcy agencies in New York City, creating and managing ad campaigns and TV commercials. He was a writer, director, and producer of feature films in Hollywood, and later in Italy with directors such as Fellini and Antonioni. His work was shown in Cannes and at other film festivals throughout Europe.
