A true early visionary for good who was loyal to his friends and family in Idaho and beyond. The world needs more like J.R. Simplot!

I will never forget Jack accepting an invitation to speak at the Glenns Ferry High School graduation ceremony.
He told it like it is but leads by example with kindness to anyone deserving. We grew potatoes for Jack about 27 years. I always thought that Jack's word was his bond. I will always have good memories of Jack Simplot and the companies he built.

I never knew about J.R. Simplot until this evening. I read a book called Fast Food Nation and J. R. Simplot was in there. What a awsome story of a individuals life. Remarkable.

Jack Simplot's life and mine intersected about 65 years ago, over a serving of potatoes. My Great Uncle, Fred R McCabe, and Jack Simplot were friends back in the 30's and 40's, maybe even before that time, because Fred was sheep ranching and buying and selling real estate in the teens and 20s of the 20th century, and he really got around the state of Idaho. Jack was an up and coming entrepreneur about 30 years younger than Fred.
I became aware of Jack Simplot in the early 1940s when Great Uncle Fred came to our home in Boise one day with sample packages of dehydrated potato products for mama to prepare and feed to the family. He told her Jack needed feedback from us. How was the consistency, taste, etc? We all reported to Mama and she gave Fred our report to take to Jack. It must have been a good report. The dehydrated potato product, when properly prepared in mess halls and field kitchens during World War II were a welcome staple. They may have helped the allies to win the war! Thanks for the memories.
