Goleta residents, Don Jack and Nancy (Heath) Jack, have been married for 65 years.
In 1946 the couple met in a classroom at the University of Wisconsin. They were married in 1948. What made their meeting possible was Nancy going off to college when barely 17 and Don delaying college entrance by 3 years.
Don spent 3 years in the Air Force during WWII. He flew combat missions as a turret gunner on a B-24 Bomber.
Upon graduation in 1950, the couple moved to the city of Stevens Point in northern Wisconsin. It was a beautiful area, but the winters were severely cold! In 1964 they moved to Goleta, CA.
The couple have 4 children, 10 grandchildren and 3 great- grandchildren.
