He served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War before entering the glass industry. Hoisington was later recognized by the Glass Dealer’s Association for 50 years of excellence.

“Of the myriad memories that were enjoyed together, perhaps one of Jack’s favorite were the many car rides he would take his children and grandchildren on. And not merely enjoying the fun of the ride, but Jack just loved playing tour guide as he drove them by many of the glass projects he had been involved in and pointing out where he had left his mark on the city. Always, with esteemed and humble pride,” reads his obituary.
