Resident Spotlight: Joseph “Jack” Jackline


Posted by Kia Crawford on February 27th, 2012 in Fayetteville, GA | No Comments

I am a second generation family from Yugoslavia. My grandparents came here not speaking a word of English and it was with them and 9 siblings that I enjoyed life and church living in Pittsburgh.  I attended University of Pittsburgh where I earned my PhD of internal medicine. I served my country through the Air Force under the Berry Plan and also studied Aerospace Medicine. I was a Base Surgeon with DASA from 1959-1972.

I truly believe my best accomplishments have been raising my nine kids, (6 girls and 3 stooges) and being married to my best friend Ellen Lynn of 18 years. As for now I enjoy 24 grand kids, flying and gardening.

With the state of the world now, I tell the young people continue to study and extend yourself to your church and your country. Work hard, be honest pray always and be happy.

Living here at Dogwood Forest’s assisted living community in Fayetteville, GA is just an extension of my original home with my extended new family.
