One of Ottawa County’s true pioneers and philanthropists, Jack Schiller, passed away recently.
Schiller was truly an accomplished individual having served as a delegate of President Eisenhower for the People to People program and also served on trade missions to Europe, Asia, South America, Australia and China for Ohio Gov. Jim Rhodes.
About a year ago, he was named a Trustee Emeritus for the Ottawa County Community Foundation. He started his own Agri-business, Hayward and Company, in 1932. Jack was 103.
