Jack Sharp


It was always easy to find Jack in a crowded room: he’d be up in front of everyone. He was always community minded and his endeavors included serving on Woodstown Boro Council. He spent 32 years at E.I. DuPont in the Wilmington office and when he retired took a position with Woodstown National Bank as a teller. He acted and directed many plays for the Sketch Club, the Little Theater Club and Salem Oakwood Summer Theater. Somehow he found time to play a little golf and zip back and forth to his summer home in Townsends Inlet Later years Cape May became his second home. Not only did he attend Ebenezer UM Church but often was called on to be a Lay Speaker. He served as Secretary of the State Grange and was a member of the Swedesboro Masonic Lodge and the Loyal Order of Moose. Any evening Jack could be found dining at the Woodstown Diner.
His bus trips to Pierce Jr. College School of Business led him to meet Arnold Otten. More like brothers than friends, Jack was incorporated into his family (when Arnold married Carol she knew that Jack came along with the deal.) Uncle Jack spent every holiday with the Ottens and traveled with them on family vacations. Williamsburg, VA was a favorite destination. He is also survived by his cousin Irving (Jean) Sharp.
