Jack Mosser is an American illustrator best known for his prints of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, but also illustrates other works.
He currently holds the position of Associate Dean for Development at Western Michigan University’s Homer Stryker, MD School of Medicine where he helped raise funds for their institution.
Early Life and Education
Mary Moser was raised and taught for 41 years in Billings, Montana. Together with her husband Jack, she raised three children, 11 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren – not to mention sharing an affinity for cats: Itty Bitty Kitty first appeared at their doorstep and was soon followed by other stray friends that became beloved members of their household.
Last year, Mosser worked on a project that raised funds for a new foundation supporting Kalamazoo Public Schools without board approval or awareness. His services were paid $76,000. Assisted Superintendent Jim English later departed after interim superintendent Cindy Green conducted an investigation and found he hadn’t followed district policy when seeking board approval of expenses incurred from this work.
Green’s investigation determined that Mosser failed to inform DeLuca of his affiliation with the new foundation. Mosser began meeting with Raichoudhuri starting in April 2022 in order to assemble a foundation board and file state paperwork to formally create it.
As a fundraiser, Mosser has created cultures of philanthropy at universities nationwide by raising funds for alumni engagement programs. He has developed major gifts programs, endowed and current use funds for student scholarships, secured corporate partnerships with planned giving options, as well as working closely with professional and family foundations.
Mosser made an instant impression at West Virginia University’s inaugural indoor track meet of his college career by taking on and besting one of their top miler’s in history. Later that same year he finished sixth at NCAA championships for 1,000 yard run event.
Mosser began fundraising for KPS without school board approval or knowledge in August, without garnering awareness from either. When former superintendent Rita Raichoudhuri resigned in December, interim Superintendent Cindy Green initiated an investigation. Over five months, Mosser earned $76,000 through this foundation.
Achievement and Honors
Jack serves on numerous boards and committees as well as being an avid gardener who has done wonders to enhance our community through hard work and dedication. Additionally, Jack and Shirley are active members of the Hamilton Community Foundation where they contribute their hard work by having their own scholarship fund as well as becoming Legacy Society members.
Mosser has successfully raised funds for simulated patient labs and endowed faculty chairs, expanded corporate partnership programs and planned giving efforts, increased unrestricted operating support for student scholarships, and collaborated closely with professional and family foundations.
Prior to joining WMed, Mosser worked as the development director for Kalamazoo Public Schools’ Homer Stryker, M.D. School of Medicine where he received a $76,000 payment to help establish and raise money for a foundation which later turned out to be cover for KPS fundraising efforts. Payments by KPS were made without notifying school board or legislators and were thus highlighted in state legislative bills as illegal acts by KPS.
Mosser enjoys camping and fishing as leisure activities. In particular, he takes great pleasure in spoiling his five grandchildren–he affectionately refers to them as his “Little Jacks”. He eagerly supports their interests in activities after school or educational pursuits.
Mosser previously served as associate dean for development and alumni affairs at Western Michigan Medicine’s Homer Stryker, M.D. School of Medicine in Kalamazoo, Michigan. While fundraising, KPS paid him $76,000 over five months without knowing about or authorizing such activity.
He serves on the board of JAKS Fund, with extensive experience leading institutional advancement, fundraising and alumni engagement at higher education institutions across the U.S. Additionally, his corporate finance expertise extends far beyond.
Mosser has amassed an estimated net worth of approximately $3.5 Million due to his career as a producer.
