Remembering Jack Jackson – Founder and former CEO of American Laboratories, Inc.

Jack Jackson (Aug. 30, 1923 – Jan. 28, 2016)

The staff of American Laboratories, Inc., extends our condolences to the family of Jack E. Jackson, co-founder and instrumental visionary for the fundamentals of American Laboratories prior to our inception on Feb. 27, 1967.

Sadly, Jack passed away Jan. 28 in Omaha. He is survived by son Jeff (Heidi Donner) Jackson, and daughters Susie (Sam) Costanzo and Betsy (Steve) Klemme; 8 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.

Jack served as the chief executive officer of American Laboratories until retiring in 1992 and turning leadership of the company over to his son, Jeff.

He was a member of the Tangier Shrine and Church of the Cross. He was also a race horse owner and breeder.

Jack’s vision helped build American Laboratories, Inc. from our humble beginnings into the company that we are today, and he guided us into being a leader of the Enzyme and Protein marketplace. His determination and strong business ethics are also instilled within our corporate culture and character that our employees possess.

A memorial service will be held Sunday, Jan. 31, in Omaha. Private interment is at Evergreen Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the Tangier Shrine Transportation Fund. Crosby Burket Swanson Golden Colonial Chapel handled arrangements.
