He was a member of Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church of Hilltown, PA and the Knights of Columbus. He was a founding father of Elder Law, and a member of many Elder Law organizations and law committees, too numerous to mention. Jack was also an adjunct professor of law for a time at Bucks County Community College. He was elected Super Lawyer by his peers every year since 2005. His spirited personality, wit, and gift of gab allowed him to be a natural at speaking engagements related to Elder Law. He also authored many articles pertaining to his profession. Jack loved playing golf, gardening, pinochle, travelling, and sailing. He especially loved being with his friends, family, and grandchildren.
He was the beloved husband of 12 years to Anita (Schechinger) Hetherington; devoted father of Wendy L.
