How did you and Jack meet?
PS: After I graduated from college, I took a job at
Snowbird Ski Resort in Utah, running their
kindergarten and daycare programs.
Jack was a short order cook, and I knew he
liked me, when he would hide the bacon under
the pancakes for me in the breakfast line.
We dated for seven years and got married in 1980.
We lived in Vermont for 13 years, where are
two sons, Morgan and Skylar, were born. We
moved here in 1991 and have never regretted it
for a single day.
When you first started Jack’s, did you think it
was a Cosmic idea?
PS: Because we had been in the restaurant trade for many years in Vermont, we both knew it was time to start another concept. Jack grew up going to a small hot dog stand in New Jersey and we often talked about doing the same. We found the building on Route17 and all the stars were aligned for a new Cosmic adventure.
What are some of your favorite memories about Jack’s from over the years?
PS: All of the wonderful kids who have worked for us, including our two sons and many of their friends from high school. One of their best friends met his future wife there when she came in to order hot dogs. Many of our employees continue to return when they are on vacation to visit and tell us how much they loved working at Jack’s. Plus, meeting our customers, from regulars to President Bill Clinton.
In addition to Jack’s, what keeps you busy?
PS: I am a senior national trainer for The Bob Pike Group, where I travel nationally and internationally delivering programs on Instructional Design, Train The Trainer and Presentation Skills. I am currently writing a book on women in leadership, “Real Women, Real Leaders.”
What do you like to do in your free time?
PS: I am an avid reader and love to putter around the garden. I also enjoy spending time with our sons and helping them with their new houses. I have been practicing yoga for 13 years, and enjoy studying with different teachers.
