In 1958, he started his own business, a consulting electrical engineering firm” J.D. Crevier and Associates, Inc., in Burbank, CA.

Jack was President of the Association of Consulting Electrical Engineers in 1972 and President of the Consulting Electrical Engineer Association of California in 1990.

Volunteer work was important to him. This included activities at Our Lady Queen of Angels Parish in Newport Beach:  the Annual Blood Drive, Thanksgiving and Christmas Adopt A Family, and especially SPIN, Serving People in Need.

Jack is survived by his sweetheart of 70 years, Jill, and his 6 children –  Mary Sabatasso, Cathy Charboneau, Eileen Gross, Charleen Garcia, John Crevier, and Laurie Hughes.

    I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. & Mrs. Crevier while visiting their daughter Laurie in Newport Beach. Although I didn’t know him well, he and Jill were extremely kind and welcoming to me and my family. I know how much he is, and will be missed, and my sincere condolences go out to the entire Crevier family.

  2. My sincere condolences to the Crevier family. We are thinking of you. May you Rest In Peace Mr. Crevier. Your daughter Laurie spoke fondly of you and your family. Love The Jacksons

  3. He was one of the greatest and that greatness is evident in all his children. I am lucky that I met him.

    I first met Jack when they were living in Lakeview Terrace and I came to a family function with my girl friend Suzanne. We played some intense volleyball in those days and I soon learned there were no prisoners taken in those games when I got a spike off the top of my head! I realized from that moment on that I would like Jack and I always searched him out at family parties. We chatted a lot over the years and the last time I saw Jack was at the their Senior Living Home in Corona Del Mar recently. I went up to him where he was seated and shook his hand, but he did not really know me. Later in the party he came over and sat down next to me and said, “I know you, you are Roy and you are married to my Niece Suzanne”! I will miss my chats with Uncle Jack Crevier!

  5. We have known Jack for almost exactly 40 years, when the Crevier family became an extension of the Gross family from Iowa. Over the years, Jack and Jill were regular attendees at family gatherings, which were always filled with much joy and laughter. He never failed to call Mom on her birthday, as this was the man we was. Jack will be missed at future gatherings, but we know that his kind and giving spirit lives on through his kids, grandkids and great grandkids. Rest in peace Jack. Hugs to the Jill and family.
