Jack grew up on E. Pine St. in Lodi with his parents and four siblings. During his younger years Jack enjoyed playing sports, hunting, and participating in 4H for many years. After graduating from Lodi High School, Jack attended UC Davis in the animal husbandry program. It was during this time, at UCD, that he met the love of his life Bonnie Jean Wolfsen. A courtship ensued, and Bonnie and Jack were married on August 5th 1956. After serving in the National Guard, they eventually settled in San Leandro, where they raised their family. Jack was a supervisor for Del Monte Corp. for 34 years, where he cultivated many friendships.
Jack enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He was always an attentive father, making sure that he was able to attend all of the children's events/activities. Jack's own hobbies included poker night with the neighbors, duck hunting in Gustine, and playing golf whenever he got the chance.
Jack will always be remembered as a devoted husband, awesome dad, fun loving brother and uncle, and a wonderful man, he will be missed!
