Jack was an avid golfer and attended Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Millville, New Jersey. After serving in the U.S. Army he went on to work at United States Postal Service as Postmaster General.
He spent several years fighting against the Board for budgetary control, until in 1932 the Missouri Supreme Court granted him control of the police department – thus proving Lord Actons famous axiom that absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Early Life and Education
Jack was an incredibly generous, thoughtful, and kind individual who thoroughly enjoyed keeping his Irish heritage alive through music and service. For over seventy years he enjoyed team tennis several times every week while traveling and spending time with his family–especially his eleven grandchildren!
At the turn of the 20th century, city politics were organized through a ward system in which neighborhood residents elected representatives from their districts to vote in city elections. Saloonkeepers like James Pendergast became popular candidates for office due to their popularity among neighborhood residents.
Pendergast’s power fell following a series of political scandals during the 1920s and 1930s, particularly a federal tax-evasion scheme which revealed evidence that he accepted bribes from fire insurance companies for supporting them during rate increase disputes.
Jack was an accomplished banker, serving as both president of First Exchange Bank in Martins Ferry, Ohio and chief executive officer at Bank of America in Fairmont. Additionally, he held military reserves positions and worked as a Russian linguist.
He was an active member of both Ancient Order of Hibernians Division 3 and American Legion, in addition to being an accomplished button accordion player and drummer in The Regimental Fife and Drum Corp. With his wife Sue he enjoyed traveling as well as participating in team tennis competitions at Riverside Racquet Club several times each week.
Jim leaves behind his wife Sue; sons Matt (Tammy) and Christopher; daughters Jennifer Polen and Charla Sedziol; grandchildren McKenna Polen, Logan Polen Sydney Sedziol Tyler Sedziol and many other relatives as well as brother Tom.
Achievement and Honors
Jack Pendergast lived an extraordinarily fulfilling and active life over his ninety-five years, creating the Jack Pendergast Foundation which continues to support students in Kensington, Connecticut today.
He possesses extensive knowledge in many subjects and easily converses with doctors, scientists, scholars, intellectuals, vagabonds and highly specialized masters from multiple fields and cultures. Furthermore, he excels at psychological manipulation and disguise.
He currently resides at an apartment in Manhattan’s Dakota building with a full zen garden, full butler and chauffeur, Proctor. He carries a Les Baer Government Model M1911 customized by pistol smith Hilton Yam as his weapon, along with various hidden tools including lock picks, flashlights of different sizes, several syringes and test tubes he keeps hidden under his coat.
Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann was his advocacy platform for Ireland’s traditional music preservation, serving his nation during tense Cold War years while in his spare time enjoying activities such as telemark skiing, hiking, biking, rafting and climbing 14er mountains.
He was a devoted family man, always placing the needs of others before his own. He treasured his 11 grandchildren, attending their events whether school-, music- or sports-related. Furthermore, he took great pride in celebrating his Irish heritage by marching in NYC’s St Patrick’s Day parade every year for over 70 years!
John and Sue enjoyed numerous rounds of team tennis every week and volunteering for many years with the Society of Saint Vincent de Paul. Additionally, they enjoyed traveling and playing bridge.
Oaklee Pendergast’s Net Worth, Salary, House, Cars & Lifestyle
Oaklee Pendergast is an American actor best known for appearing in various movies and TV series. It is estimated that his estimated net worth stands at roughly $9 Million; he currently resides in Greenwich, Connecticut.
His reading habits included avidly devouring books like Ron Chernow’s biography Grant and Luke Harding’s Collusion for understanding life around him. His nightstand would often contain such titles.
His research is thorough and expansive, boasting an impressive bibliography. Unfortunately, however, his conclusions are flawed; he failed to acknowledge that national and global events had more of a profound effect on masculinity than magazines did; this is evident when reading periodicals studied that responded in content and editorial response to such external influences – results of these forces can be found reflected in masculinity depictions within these magazines he studied.
