Captain Jack W. Motter

jackJack passed away peacefully in his home, with his family beside him, after a year’s battle with Leukemia.

He was born in Oakland, CA. He moved around in his early years, while his father finished out his naval career. After his father left the Navy, they settled in Seattle, WA, where Jack completed a degree in Geochemistry from Western Washington University. In 1969 he moved to Reno, NV, to continue his work in the field of Geology. In 1970 he and Liz married and spent the early years traveling the western United States for Jack’s geology jobs. Jack completed his MBA at UNR in 1980, later utilizing his degree at Sierra Pacific Power Company. After retiring from SPPC, he worked at Moana Lane Nursery.

Throughout the years, many people were touched by his intelligence, integrity, kindness, and willingness to provide support to those in any aspect of life. Those who were fortunate to have been part of Jack’s life, he leaves them with many warm and humorous memories. His wish is that we all celebrate his life, and find comfort in the memories we have of him.
