In Loving Memory
Albert William Jache
11/5/1924 - 5/3/2010

Albert W. Jache died Tuesday, May 3, 2010 in the comfort of his home. He was born on November fifth, 1924 in Manchester, New Hampshire. He enlisted in the army during World War II when he was 18. After being discharged from the service, he entered college where he met his wife, Lucy Hauslein. He received his B.S and M.S. degrees in chemistry from the University of New Hampshire, and his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Washington in 1952. His dissertation was in fluorine chemistry.

In 1952 he worked for the Air Reduction Company in New Jersey making products from liquefied air. Albert was a research assistant in the physics department at Duke University from 1953 to 1955. From 1955 to 1961 he was a professor in chemistry at Texas A&M. Albert conducted research involving fluorine for the Ozark Mahoning Company in Oklahoma. He worked at Olin in Connecticut in 1964. He was a chemistry professor at Marquette University from 1967 to 1990, chairman of the chemistry department from 1967 to 1972, dean of the graduate school from 1972 to 1977, associate academic vice president for health sciences from 1974 to 1977, and associate vice president for academic affairs from 1977 to 1985. He returned to his love of teaching and research until his retirement in 1990

His family, bicycling, playing string bass, listening to opera, and walking his dog brought joy to his life. He and Lucy moved to Marietta, Ohio in 1991 to join his daughters and grandchildren. He was a member of the Evergreen Community Orchestra, and the River City Orchestra.

While he retired in 1990 he continued to consult and referee papers for journals until the fall of 2009.

Lucy and Family; I am saddened to hear this news and want to give you and your family my heartfelt condolences on your loss. I consider myself very lucky to interact with Dr. Jache (I could never call him Albert) when he got back into teaching and was honored to have him on my committee. Although his handwritten comments were always an adventure, the wisdom and helpfulness was always a constant. His wit was quick, and his puns......well he had such a quick wit. :) I especially enjoyed our time together when he came to Argonne after his retirement from Marquette. Long dinners and even longer talks would always bring a smile to my face. Even in this saddness, I am smiling now as I remember the positive impact he had on not only my life, but on the thousands of people he touched. Dr. Jache and the Jache family are in my thoughts and prayers. Anthony Sommese -Aurora, IL
