Jack Schultz, 93, died Thursday morning at Crouse Hospital.
Born on October 26, 1927 in Brooklyn to Samuel and Rose Schultz, he had been a resident of Syracuse since 1958.
Jack attended Erasmus HS in Brooklyn, graduated from Newtown HS in Queens, earned his undergraduate degree from Syracuse University, and his law degree from SU as well. He was a proud brother of AEP fraternity.
He was a practicing attorney in Syracuse for more than 60 years.
Jack served as a Town of Dewitt judge from 1974 to 2009. He was a well respected judge known for his honesty, fairness, and compassion. The town of DeWitt honored Jack with naming the courtroom after him.
He proudly served in the US Army from 1946-1947. He trained at Ft. Knox and was stationed in Ft. Lewis where he was a Morse code radio operator.
He was a great member of Dewitt Rotary and supported the efforts of Rotary to give back to the community... his “Mickey Mouse” pancakes were legendary. He was also a member of Temple Adath Yeshurun, Onondaga Post 131 of the Jewish War Veterans, a past President of the Onondaga County Magistrates Association, and the Bar associations of NYS and Onondaga County.
Jack was an ardent fan of SU sports dating back to the days of Archibald, and Manley. He also was a fan of the Chiefs.

The Honorable Jack Schultz was a fellow town judge who I have known and admired for 29 years. He strived to craft the best justice possible. He was down to earth, caring, and genuinely interested in getting to know everyone he met. He was fascinated with the world around him and loved interacting with people on ideas to make things better. This remarkable man as left a void.
