Jordan Thomas Schanck


Jordan Thomas Schanck, 86, formerly of Oak Brook, IL went to his eternal home on Saturday, January 13, 2018 in Maryville, IL while surrounded by loved ones. 

He leaves behind his wife and best friend of 60 years, Barbara Burgoyne; his children Karen Lynch (Brian), Rebecca Nelson (Mitch), William Schanck (Maureen).  5 Grandchildren; Kaitlin Self (Mike), Margaret Petry (Jordan) Jordan Thomas Lynch (Kaylyn), Abygail Nelson and Ashley Schanck, 4 Great Grandchildren; Wyatt, Sam, Ben and Beau.  Also surviving are sister, Susan Fawcett and brother Peter Schanck. 

Tom was known as a great business man and leader.  His college years were spent at Dartmouth College.  After serving with great distinction during the Korean Conflict, Tom began his career with Signode Steel Strapping Co.  He was named Chairman and CEO in 1982 and continued in that role for 14 years.  In addition, he was Vice Chairman of Illinois Tool Works (ITW), parent company of Signode.  Tom also served on numerous corporate boards of directors, including American National Bank, Amerifin Corporation, Amsted Industries, Lindberg Corporation, Maytag and Snap-on-Tools.  As a business leader, he also served on the governing boards of the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Economic Club or Chicago. 

Tom used to say, “busy people are happy people,” and he certainly was busy with his church, Christ Church of Oak Brook, family and friends.  His free time was spent serving Christ and serving others.  Tom enjoyed traveling and he spent much of his retirement in Loblolly Bay, Florida and Bar Harbor, Maine where he enjoyed golfing, boating, and photography.  Tom was a lifelong Cubs fan and was extremely pleased to watch them win the World Series in 2016.  Though he will be missed by his loved ones here on earth, there is a promise of reuniting again.
