It is with a very sad and heavy heart that we inform you that on Monday, August 24th, Jack Harold Smith passed away at his home in Modesto, California.  Jack was the last remaining founder of West-Mark.

Jack was born on July 15 in 1925.  In 1967, Jack along with two friends, Art and Ernie decided to start West-Mark.  Jack, as General Manager, was the “driver” for our continued growth and great success.  In our 50 plus years of existence, West-Mark has grown to over 230 team members with five locations in California and Alaska.

We, THE ENTIRE WEST-MARK FAMILY, along with our partners (customers and vendors) wish the Smith family all our very best during this difficult time.  We all were so fortunate to have had Jack as a leader and friend.

Jack was truly a kind soul, may he rest in peace.
