After his Naval service, Jack was called to serve as a Missionary for the LDS Church in the French Mission (France, Switzerland and Belgium) for 2 ½ years. He loved to tell about the memories of his mission and speaking French his entire life.

Jack and Barbara met at BYU in the Knight Mangum Hall cafeteria in 1959 where she wanted to join her roommates in line in front of Jack. He was very happy to let her get in line in front of him, but gave her a bit of a teasing about butting in front of everybody, of course he took the opportunity to get better acquainted with her, and soon after, they had their first date. Jack married Barbara Dee Wilkinson in the Los Angeles Temple on Feb. 27, 1960. Jack served in student government and many clubs at BYU. Jack graduated from BYU in 1961. He was and will always be a TRUE BLUE LIFE LONG BYU COUGAR FAN.

Jack started his career in business as a Computer Programmer at NCR, in El Segundo, CA., Hughes Aircraft Co., General Electric in Phoenix, Arizona and later in sales at GE and International Management with Calcomp and General Automation. In 1976, Jack and Barbara moved to Alpine, Utah with his children to take a management position with Beehive International, but also to give his children a better opportunity to succeed. Jack was a very successful business man, he created many businesses that helped the computer industry launch. He was able to travel all over the world and always loved working and progressing in all areas of his life.

Jack served in the LDS Church faithfully and was committed to help in any capacity he was asked, most of all he will be remembered for his service as a dedicated Home Teachers and serving with Barbara as temple workers in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple. Jack had a full and successful life in work, serving in the Gospel, and leading and guiding his family. Jack was admired by associates everywhere he went.
