The family lived in Ridgewood, New Jersey where Jack attended the Ridgewood schools, was active in baseball and other sports, He was a member of the Order of DeMolay. His nickname was ‘Whitey’. He also worked in his parent’s company during vacation breaks to help out. Jack graduated from Ridgewood High School in 1958. After graduation, he attended Hope College in Michigan. He returned home after one year to help his ailing father run his business.
Jack began dating Virginia ‘Ginny’ Sherrer, a 1958 Ridgewood High School classmate. They were engaged in 1960 and married a year later in June of 1961. In time, Jack and Ginny expanded their family to include a daughter, Kimberly and a son, Michael and raised them in Oakland, New Jersey. Family was a priority for him. The Walter A. Lehmann & Son Company fell on hard times and failed. Jack worked for Phillips Petroleum for a time, was a manager at Konica Minolta Co., in the fall of 2001, Jack retired from his managerial position at TSK America.
Jack was an easy-going, fun loving, friendly guy, willing to try anything new and adventurous. He loved his family and enjoyed doing things with and for them. He was the Rock of the family! In 2001, Jack and Ginny purchased and renovated a condo in Deerfield Beach, Florida with a beautiful view of the ocean. By 2011, the couple moved permanently to the condo they loved. Jack developed some serious health issues along the way that could have been fatal, but he was a fighter and came through them until recently.
