Jack Grant ’61 always found wonder, humor, and nuance in life. Jack’s childhood was marked by a love for tinkering and he’d go on to apply his engineering prowess to all things. He worked on the so-called “Mars Box”—a project to reproduce the Martian environment in a chamber—and computer modeling of aircraft infrared tail emissions as well as early designs of hybrid vehicles. Jack also served in the U.S. Army, during which time he met his wife, Dorthy. The two traveled the world together and loved going on nature walks. Jack was a man who charted a big life but never lost sight of the little things he could do to help people along the way. Jack died April 2, 2024.
