Back to Jack's LifeWeb


Jack Kuncl was the banjo player for the Original Salty Dogs, Chicago Hot Six, Chicago Footwarmers, Riverboat Ramblers and for many years he played at Wrigley Field with the jazz band for the Chicago Cubs. He was also a barbershop quartet singer and member of the DuPage County, Ill. chorus for many years.


A dedicated member of the Delta Pi chapter of DKE, Jack passed away in December 2020 in Chicago’s western suburbs. He was a regular at the Fred Wells luncheons during Spring Break. When the chapter was reactivated in 2014, Jack attended the reunion at the Union League Club of Chicago that August, Homecoming in October, and Founder’s Day dinner in June 2015. His enthusiasm and good cheer was an inspiration to all.
