The Mackinac Bridge Authority (MBA) has been notified of the passing of former board member Jack D. Krueger, who died Wednesday, March 4, in Las Vegas.
Krueger, who served six years on the Bridge Authority board from 1994 to 1999, was appointed by Michigan Gov. John Engler.
“Just more than 30 people have served as board members of the Mackinac Bridge Authority in the nearly 60 years the bridge has spanned the Straits,” said MBA Board Chairman William H. Gnodtke. “Each and every one of them has served in that role with honor and distinction, and Jack certainly exemplified that spirit of service.”
Krueger “retired” to the Upper Peninsula following a career at Chrysler and the manufactured housing industry in Kansas, he went on to several other roles in Michigan: news director of WTIQ in Manistique, representing the Economic Development Corporation in Alger County, executive director of the Travel and Recreation Association, and senior vice president of marketing with North Country Bank and Trust.
