He was born in Passaic, NJ on November 27, 1943, the son of the late Jack Sr. and Rose (Bogert) Phillips and brother to the late Larry Phillips.

He held senior executive positions at a number of leading financial institutions and other businesses until his retirement from Valley National Bank. He served in the U.S. Army Reserves and was a proud member of the Hobbyist Unlimited Club of Ridgewood, NJ. Jack was an avid reader, loved movies, enjoyed traveling, watching football and cherished spending time with loved ones, especially family get-togethers and watching his grandchildren play sports and grow up. He will be greatly missed.
