A little about Jack...
Much was accomplished during Jack’s tenure. Jack was an advocate for the acquisition of open space, improvement to existing facilities and development of new properties. Jack was instrumental in the Park District winning the National Gold Medal Award in 1998. During his time on the board, more than 1,000 acres of land used for parks and open space were acquired. Two successful referendums were passed which paved the way for the acquisition of open space, development of Primrose Farm, two major sports complexes, construction of an aquatic park, nature center and miles of bike path. Jack’s passion was aquatics, specifically the renovation of the 70-year-old Swanson Pool in Pottawatomie Park.
