Jack and Joyce raised a family of eight children; Timothy Jewett (Chesta), Michael Jewett, Brian Jewett (Annette), John “Scott” Jewett, Daniel Jewett, Kimberly Ploof (William),
Christopher Jewett (Stacey) and William Jewett.
Jack had 15 grandchildren; Naomi Lamb, Maria Vasquez, Bo Zwolski, Michelle Jewett, Brian “BJ” Jewett, Michele Jewett, Amber Smith, Erin Goehrig, Ashley Tullock, Kristofer Jewett, Lindsay DiSarro, Aubrey Ganon, Sarah Ploof, Dustin Jewett, Dylan Jewett.

Jack served in the US Navy from 1951-1955 and received a National Service Medal for his service during the Korean War. Jack and his family were parishioners at Immaculate Conception Church in Schenectady for many years. He was also a member of the Knights Of Columbus.
Jack was a very social guy (could talk to anyone) and a very hard worker, sometimes having multiple jobs to provide for his family of ten. He worked many years delivering for Freihofer’s on horse and buggy and retired from Unifirst Uniform Services, a member of The Teamsters Union. Jack loved to golf, camp, bowl, play cards with his wife, and be among friends and family. He enjoyed telling stories of his life all while indulging in a good smoke of his cigarette. His memory will be cherished and never forgotten. As Jack requested, funeral services will be private.
