Jack entered eternal life on Sept. 19, 2012, after a "life in full" marked by humor, service, integrity and optimism. Jack was born in Williamsport, Pa., on Nov. 25, 1924. Upon graduating from Williamsport High, where he was an excellent football center, he enlisted in the U.S. Army and was assigned to the ASTP program and attended Clemson and Georgetown Universities. He served in Northern Europe with the 102d Infantry Division, the "Ozarks". Following the war, Jack obtained a law degree from George Washington University and married Ann Brady of Washington, DC. He joined the CIA, working on assignments in Europe and Washington DC. He developed a strong passion for the nascent computer industry and this led to his many years as a business executive at GE, Univac, and Burroughs and later as CEO of IPT.
Jack's career took the family to Maryland, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Virginia. Jack's interests included sailing, golfing and especially music. He shared his collection of musicals with all of his grandchildren. After enjoying several years of retirement living in Delaware, Jack and Ann returned to Northern Virginia.
We celebrate Jack's 62 year devotion to his wife Ann, and his devotion to his five surviving children, John (Sue), Andy (Kathy), Teresa Weipert (Dennis), Tracy Richardson (Dave) and Mary Bea Kampman (Dean), and the 14 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. Jack is also survived by his sisters, Mary Jo Brouse of Williamsport, Pa., and Barbara Carino of Wakefield, Mass., but was preceded in death by his sister, Jean Gibson and parents, John and Nellie.
