Early Life and Education
Jack Simon was an extraordinary intellect, teacher, and student of life who lived by internationalist principles. A fierce opponent to any form of racism or chauvinism in any form or fashion. One of my closest personal relationships.
Jack was raised in Stettler, Alberta and attended Wm. E Hay Composite High School there before going on to Olds College for training as a recreational vehicle technician. Additionally, he has been working with his father and brother at Simon’s R.V Service Centre for over thirty years as well.
Jack was an active member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, West Liberty Lions Club, and Mansell Phillips American Legion Post #509 who greatly loved his family and was dedicated to serving his community. His presence will be sorely missed by his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren who will mourn him deeply.
Jack Simon was a metallurgist and materials engineer who served General Motors (GM) for 33 years, helping develop polymer, meta matrix and ceramic composites used on their automobiles. Additionally, he participated in research project at Idaho National Laboratory concerning hydrogen cars.
Simon is generally on the side of civilization; however, he finds the beast captivating and feels an inextricable link with nature and wilderness on the island. Simon is small and skinny with bright eyes that tan easily; shy yet mysterious at times; often disappearing without notice from other people.
Simon has worked as both a news correspondent and sports coach, spending 25 years as part of U.S Swimming’s national coaching staff. Furthermore, he is often seen on CNN or high-profile talk shows such as Dr Phil’s show or other high profile platforms.
Achievement and Honors
Jack Simon worked as a metallurgical and materials engineer at General Motors for 33 years, conducting research on polymer, meta matrix and ceramic composites as well as writing numerous technical papers.
He also served as a BBC business journalist, replacing Declan Curry on BBC Breakfast until September 2011. Additionally, he presented multiple podcasts for The Daily Telegraph.
Simon earned all-conference recognition this season as both BIG EAST Individual Champion and All-Conference Golfer, earning all-conference status as well. Simon will compete at the Bath Regional from May 15-17 with only top-5 teams and one individual from each region qualifying for NCAA finals; Simon hopes this marks his first opportunity since 2021 to participate in an NCAA event; boasting an excellent 72.6 stroke average he could become first St John’s player since 2014 to secure an invitation into NCAAs.
Jack has enjoyed an intimate friendship with NCIS Special Agent Kensi Blye for many years, sharing an interest in Tetris and burritos as well as hosting weekly Tetris nights together.
Jack always saw himself as an observer of life, taking every opportunity to learn from new situations or cultures he encountered – this made him such an effective teacher.
He frequently taught at universities. He pioneered an inter-disciplinary series of studies on comparative African governance and law. He detested dogmatism and parrot learning, taking pleasure in puncturing it during his lectures by asking “What is strategy versus tactics?”, when someone would put up their hand he’d cite a quotation from Lenin as evidence for that position.
Jack is a well-known journalist who earns a significant income. At 48 years old and single, he prefers to keep his personal life private and avoid media scrutiny.
He has been in the business for many years and made an enormous amount of money through his work. Additionally, he has participated in several TV series and movies.
In 2020, he earned $73,500 after defeating Merab Dvalishvili for the Fight of the Night Bonus at UFC Fight Night: Barboza vs Lee. His other victories came against Ray Borg, Gaetano Pirrello Brian Kelleher and Raphael Asuncao.
