About the Author Jack McElroy 2014

Jack McElroy is a seasoned entrepreneur with over 45 years of working experience encompassing a broad range of business disciplines. Formerly an aimless and depressed ex-college house painter, he became a serial entrepreneur who found true happiness, success, and fulfillment through a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ (in whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind).

He became a Born Again Christian in October 1978 after a two-year search for the answer to the question, “What happens to you after you die?”

Raised as a Roman Catholic, McElroy attended a Catholic grammar school and a Jesuit high school. Once a believer in the Big Bang theory and Evolution, he now passionately extols the veracity of “The Book.” He has read through the Bible 18 times. He has taught it to all age groups, from preschoolers to adults. He has served as a youth leader for over 20 years and as a deacon at a Baptist church for over 12 years.

Although he attends a Baptist church, he describes his “religion” as a “Born Again Bible Believer.”

In 1978 he left Westinghouse Broadcasting Company where he had served as an Account Executive to become President of McElroy Electronics Corporation, a family owned and controlled Corporation begun in 1957 by his father John C. McElroy. He has been the president of McElroy Electronics Corporation for over 35 years.

He is also president of McElroy Publishing and McElroy Rare Bible Page Collections. He was also President of Dutchess County Cellular Telephone Corporation and Chief Manager of Minneapolis Cellular Telephone Company LLC.

He holds a B.S. in Industrial Management from Lowell Technological Institute (now UMass Lowell). Jack and Susan have been married for 38 years. They have four children and two grandchildren.

In addition to How I Lost My Fear of Death and How You Can Too, Jack is also the author of Which Bible Would Jesus Use? The Bible Version Controversy Explained and Resolved and co-author of Adoniram Judson’s Soul Winning Secrets Revealed––An Inspiring Look at the Tools Used by “Jesus Christ’s Man” in Burma.
