This custom art was presented by friends to mark Jack Kemp’s retirement from the U.S. House of Representatives in 1988. The retrospective combines mementos from Jack Kemp’s careers in football and Congress, along with family photos. It includes a handwritten letter from President Reagan, and a bleacher back with his number 15, from the stadium where Kemp won two world championships.
Sharon Zelaska, Jack Kemp’s Administrative Assistant, who organized this surprise tribute recently shared her memories of the unveiling with us, saying “He was truly overwhelmed. The collage still holds a very special place in the Kemp home for all to see.”View full size image.
