John C. “Jack” Schottmiller

Passed away August 5, 2022, one day shy of his 92nd birthday. Predeceased by his wife, Anne; son, John, Jr.; and daughter, Julia Anne Koestner. Survived by his brothers, Raymond (Tina) and Richard (Marcia); his granddaughter, Amandine; two great-grandchildren; many cousins, nieces, and nephews. Gratitude is extended to Susan, Phil and Konrad for their dedication, compassion and care in Jack’s final months.

Dr. Schottmiller held a B.S.  from the University of Rochester and a Ph.D. from Syracuse University. At Xerox, where he worked for 27 years, he was the pioneer of Total Quality Management; upon retirement, he founded his own consulting firm. Jack’s career allowed him and his family to travel the world, a passion he enjoyed his whole life. In 2016, the University of Rochester School of Nursing recognized him with its Legacy Award for his leadership, philanthropy and community spirit.
