Jack R Cohen


Jack R. Cohen, 87, passed onto his heavenly home on October 20, 2020. Jack was a lifelong resident of Duluth until March 2020 when he moved to Inver Grove Heights due to poor health. 

Jack was born on August 26, 1933 in Duluth, MN to Robert and Jen Cohen of Duluth Heights. He worked at Superwood for 33 years and retired in 1988. He was a founding member of Animal Allies and volunteered for several other non-profit organizations. 

Jack was known for being kind, caring, and authentic. Neighbors were greeted with a smile and he was always willing to help a friend, chat with a stranger, or tell a joke to anyone that would listen.

Jack is preceded in death by his dad, mom, and brothers Don and Danny.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 50 years Collinette; daughter Carianne (Peter) of Eagan; son Aaron (Breanna) of Fargo, ND; grandchildren Tristen, Cam, Drew, and Jack; loving niece Kelly Cohen Oviatt; and many other beloved nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank White Pine Assisted Living of Inver Grove Heights and Olive Grove Hospice for their thoughtful care and support. Due to the pandemic, plans for a memorial service are pending. In lieu of gifts, please make donations to Animal Allies of Duluth.
