Jack H. Thompson (’05), who was the director of Embry-Riddle Worldwide’s Ft. Eustis Campus in Virginia, passed away at his home in Yorktown, Virginia, at the age of 91. Thompson served for 28 years in the U.S. Army and was a master aviator. After retiring from the Army, he started working at Embry-Riddle’s Worldwide Campus at Ft. Eustis. He earned his second master’s degree from Embry-Riddle at the age of 76 and continued to work at the campus office until he died. He is survived by his wife, Mary Louise, and two daughters.
“I will always remember Jack’s kind smile and caring spirit. He was an encourager and used that gift to help countless students over the years. Jack will be missed, but his legacy will live on in the profound impact he made throughout the university,” says Lyndsay Beaulieu, former associate executive director of U.S. Campus Operations at Embry-Riddle Worldwide.
