SU Will Honor Jack Gordon

The "hoopla" is now being turned on John Francis (Jack) Gordon, Seattle's civic promoter and "toastmaster general."

The familiar public relations specialist, turned executive vice president and general manager of the Restaurant Association of the State of Washington, Saturday, May 10, will receive the Seattle University Alumni Association's 1969 Distinguished Service Award.

The coveted award will be presented at the annual alumni Spring Awards luncheon, beginning at .12:30 p.m. in SU's Campion Tower. Luncheon theme is "The Role of Jesuit Higher Education in America."

"Throughout his career as promoter and publicist, Jack Gordon has continued in a thousand ways to boost into public prominence his alma mater, its students, faculty, alumni and athletic teams," said James T. Hughes, alumni president.

Gordon's wife is the former Roberta Walsh of Seattle, a 1947 SU graduate.

They have four children, John, 15, freshman at St. Edward's Seminary, Kenmore, Wash.; Mary Margaret, 13, eighth grade, and Ann Patrice, 12, sixth grade, both at Assumption School; and Joseph, 8, second grade at Blessed Sacrament School.

The Gordons live at [...], Seattle.
