He was employed by Westinghouse in marketing and sales for thirty years.

McDonagh shares, “I recall the night that he wrote this story. It was rather late. Jack enjoyed telling stories to the children and loved hearing them laugh. Jack had a witty sense humor and very quick. He inherited stories from his Irish parents as well as his humor. He often would say that a day is lost in which no one has laughed. We loved him very much and always will.”
