We are saddened to announce that Jack Jonas has passed away 7-8-15, Jack has done so much for this industry and knew so many people around the world and has spent his entire life in the taxidermy industry. Jack has also done a lot for SCI and helping start new chapters, you will be missed.

Mark Daniels


Jack Jonas passed away Wednesday, July 8, 2015. A true taxidermy industry icon, Jack was the grandson of Coloman Jonas and the former manager of Jonas Bros. Taxidermy in Denver. A member of the SCI Hunting Hall of Fame, Jack was a celebrated hunting guide, conservationist, and nearly singlehandedly saved big game hunting in Alaska. For the past two decades he has been the leading taxidermy appraiser in the world.

Spent my whole life lookin' back
 Not lookin' ahead to see
 Trying to keep my feet on track
 Doin' what was expected of me
 Kick my shoes off so they can't trace me
 Leave no forwarding address
 Before they all drive me crazy
 And I leave 'em all in a bloody mess

I remember when I first met him in Denver at the downtown Jonas studios about 40 years ago. I told him I just wanted to look around and that I was a taxidermist from Alaska. He gave me a grand deluxe tour of the entire place introducing me around etc.  He could not of been nicer.  Prayers for him and and his family.

I met Jack at an NTA show years ago. He was friendly and funny, with a lot of neat stories to tell. A great guy who will be missed. I appreciate all of the things Jack did for the taxidermy industry and for hunting.
