Possibly related, in 1982, Jack married a Hyde Park High cheerleader and the love of his life, Maureen Patricia Campbell. Maureen is the daughter of the late James and Marguerite Campbell and the mother of his greatest pride: Elizabeth Marie, Kathleen Ann, John Joseph III, Carolyn Marguerite, and Jane Conley Freeman.
With a laundry list of collegiate degrees and twelve years of dedicated service to our country, as a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy, with many more in the Navy Reserve.
