A 1952 West Point graduate with an MS from Georgetown University and his wife, Kay (they dated in high school in New Haven, CT), came to Ponte Vedra Beach in 1991. Retiring from the Army in 1986, after 34 years of service including three Infantry combat tours in Vietnam, and Airborne-Ranger assignments, Jack taught at the college level and was a director of the Ft. Riley Bank in Ft. Riley, Kansas. In addition to Kay, Tom, Bill and Mary, he is also survived by his sons, Father John Quinn, SJ (a former Marine), Michael and Dan. The General is past president of the St. Vincent de Paul Society of the Beaches area (a volunteer society that helps all needy families, without regard to religion, race or age.) He also was a Life member of the Knights of Columbus and a former director on the board of the Ponte Vedra Community Association.
