Founder and Chairman
He opened a small warehouse in his hometown of Clio, partnering with Bill Morrish who had also worked at A.P. Engelhart as controller. With one truck, Quality Pool Supply delivered 99 inground pools that first summer in 1971. Jobsite delivery was virtually unheard of at that time, but Jack’s business philosophy was built on customer service. Quality Pool Supply was also the first pool supplier in Michigan that did not sell retail—Jack wanted to partner with, rather than compete with, his customers.
Jack enjoys helping our customers with technical support when they encounter those especially challenging problems. He has technical expertise in so many fields we cannot possibly list them all here. Jack’s hobbies are equally varied. Lately he has become an expert on solar power and his hunting cabin in northern Michigan is powered by the latest in solar technology.
Jack is married to Clarice and they have four grown children – Cary, Marsha, Lee, and Jana, and eleven grandchildren. Jack and Clarice now spend the winters in Florida and enjoy frequent visits from their children and friends there.
