About Jack

I was born on the South Side of Chicago and received an outstanding parochial elementary and high school education. Curriculum emphasized was math, the sciences, English and government. I gave free tutoring lessons in high school to other kids in my lower high school grade levels and worked part time to pay for my high school tuition.
Because of my interest in, and natural tendency for math and science, I chose to get a bachelor's degree in electrical engineering at the University of Illinois and my funding was helped by scholarships, part time work and summer employment.
After graduation, and after working a number of years at General Electric, I became more and more interested in business and went on to get an MBA at the University of Wisconsin.
Along the way I got involved in the Big Brothers program as well as in religious education in my parish. I enjoyed teaching the elementary and junior high students I had the pleasure of being with in these programs. It was great to be able to see them grow both academically as well as spiritually. I have always enjoyed kids and am proud of the young adults my seven children have become.

I find math both fun as a challenge, and as an effective means of understanding and working with the world around us. It is a great avenue for developing a logical approach in your thinking and planning. I am a "numbers person".

Understanding how the physical world around us works and how basic physical principles can be applied, provides a strong sense of confidence in helping us to appreciate the world as well as function in it. Just looking around and seeing the world in operation can be fascinating.

Despite the advances of technology, verbal and written communications, whose base is grammar and vocabulary, is and will continue to be, a key determinant of success in almost all fields of endeavor. I love to help students to develop this knowledge so they can distinguish themselves in whatever they choose to do in life.

I believe our country has been blessed with more resources, assets, and freedoms than any other country on earth. Our founding fathers provided a basis for the greatness we have achieved as well as the promise the future holds for us. I would like to pass along this knowledge and appreciation of our country to the next generation so it can be kept alive and well. Each generation has to strive to get closer to the promise our country offers.
