Last week, we lost a close friend and respected member of The Active Enterprise Network. John Kroll Turpin, better known as Jack, died following a brief illness on Friday, May 21, 2010 at age 65. Turpin’s passion for real estate led him to join the family business at Turpin Real Estate, where he spent over three decades leading the company in becoming one of the premier independent real estate firms in Northern New Jersey. After passing the title of president to his son John Turpin in 2009, Jack spent his remaining time as broker of record at Turpin until his death.
Jack Turpin was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend and will be missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing such a great man. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in his honor to Blair Academy, PO Box 600, Blairstown, NJ 07825.
