Jack Morris Hirsh of Marietta passed away peacefully on December 28, 2013. He was born in Atlanta on Oct. 1, 1926, the son of Sadye and Isaac Hirsh, both of blessed memory, and was a proud alumnus of Boys High, where he graduated in 1944. At 17, Jack joined the army and trained as an engineer at North Georgia College and NYU.  After 30 years, he retired from Ellmans as Senior Vice President. Always caring and selfless, Jack then had time to volunteer, working with Meals on Wheels and other organizations. He was always helping out his children, grandchildren and other family members and most importantly his devoted wife, Esta Jean. Jack was a devoted son, faithfully caring for his mother throughout her life. He loved sports, playing tennis for most of his life, and he was a standout basketball player in his youth. Jack is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Esta Jean; his sons: Evan (Ying), Lee, and Lawrence (Alexandra); and his grandchildren: Jennifer, Jeffrey and Mamie.
