Jack Craemer, led IJ for three decades, dead at 94

Jack Craemer, former editor and co-publisher of the Marin Independent Journal, died Thursday (March 3) at his San Rafael home. He was 94.

He joined the IJ in 1947 and became its managing editor in 1949. From 1966 to 1980 he was the paper's editor and shared co-publisher duties with Wishard Brown. The two men sold the paper in 1980 and retired from the newspaper business.

The IJ says a service is planned for 11 a.m. Thursday (March 10) at Trinity Lutheran Church in San Rafael. Trinity Lutheran Church is at 333 Woodland Ave. The family requests memorial donations be made to a favorite charity.
