    He began his coaching career in 1963, taking Mount Royal to seven Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference titles. A former coach of Canada’s Junior Basketball Team (1975-79), Jack was inducted into the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame in 1990.

    He also published several papers on making mathematics more accessible to students.
