ABSTRACT
The article reports that Jack Kennedy, whose career in the bedding business spanned three decades, passed away last week at the age of 53 after fighting an illness that first struck his nervous system two years ago. Graduating in 1970 from the University of Texas at Arlington with a degree in economics, Kennedy joined the workforce, selling sales training courses for American Motivational Association. It was two years later that he forayed into the textiles industry, joining WG Haire & Son Textile Co. He began there as its Southwest area salesman, selling pillows and comforters to regional retailers. He was later promoted to national account manager and then sales manager. During his nine years there, he helped the company reach $25 million in sales.
