Jack Sholl: Patriot, Rower, Gentlemen, Unparalleled-Chapter 14

Jack Sholl, born October 30, 1925, is one of rowing’s most respected and revered legends.  And in his mid-80s, Jack still continues to compete in rowing.  Jack has been competing for 64 years in this sport at all age levels.
Jack also defines himself as a patriot.  He’s a proud member of the Sons of the American Revolution and has served as president of the Coachella Valley Chapter.  It’s interesting to note that Jack’s grandfather, Peter Shumaker, met William Penn eight generations ago.  Yes, the William Penn who was a champion of democracy and religious freedom, as well as the founder of the Province of Pennsylvania.  The principles he established for the Pennsylvania government served as an inspiration for the United States Constitution.  Jack’s grandfather met  Penn along with a group of farmers in the late 1600s in Germany. Penn encouraged them to come to the new  land , and Peter Shumaker did just that in 1695.  Another relative of Jack’s  owned a Tavern near Philadelphia, and to Jack’s  surprise he learned that this relative played a significant role In the Underground Railroad, a network of persons who helped escaped slaves on their way to freedom in the northern states in the 1800s.
