John Dwight Eversoll Obituary
November 12, 1923 - January 2, 2017 Jack was born in Los Angeles to Ida and Dwight Eversoll on November 12, 1923. He was preceded in birth by his sister, Dorothy, and brother, Don. Jack graduated from Los Angeles High School in June 1941. It was during the memorable days of high school that he met Jessie Jane Parris. Jessie and Jack were married June 12, 1943, in Austin, Texas where Jack was training as a fighter pilot in the Army Air Corps. Jack served in the South Pacific and China/Burma areas. He remained on active duty until late 1946. After discharge from the military, Jack completed his education and earned a business degree from Whittier College. Three children, Johnny, Stephanie and Jay were raised in both Los Angeles and Newport Beach. A tragic death deprived them of Johnny, their first born. Each of the remaining children parented a daughter and in addition their lives have been enriched by two great-grand daughters and a great grand-son. Jack's business career was active in various positions in the sales and marketing of pipe and valves. In 1960, a partnership was formed to represent manufacturer's sales efforts in western states including Alaska and Hawaii. During this period, a residence was maintained in Seattle for the period of 1972 to 1977. The company was sold in 1988. In addition to the above, Jack served as National President of an industry association whose members were engaged in the distribution of similar products throughout the United States. Jessie and Jack enjoyed the benefits of membership in the California Club, Los Angeles Country Club and Birnam Wood Gold Club. In 2007 Jack and Jessie relocated from Newport Beach to Santa Barbara on the belief that they would be better off in a quieter location. Jack enjoyed, through many years, the good fortune of fishing and bird shooting trips with both his family and friends. But what we will miss most is the twinkle in his eye when he laughed, his wonderful wit and sense of humor and the story about the monkey.
