Jesse F. Core

Jesse F. Core

Retired Vice President | US Steel Corporation

Education
BS, Mining Engineering, Penn State University

Initiated Chapter
Penn State University, 1934

Family
Wife: Margaret (Ann), Children – Margaret, Mary Katherine

Experience
Jesse Core, entered Chapter Eternal at the age of 80 on November 29, 1993. Core was a Distinguished Member of the Society for Mining, Metallurgy and Exploration (SME) and an honorary member, Legion of Honor Member and Erskine Ramsay Medal recipient of the American Institute of Mining, Metallurgical and Petroleum Engineers (AIME). He was elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering in 1981.

Core was a native of Ford City, Pennsylvania and graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 1937 with a degree in mining engineering. He was elected a distinguished alumnus of Penn State in 1966. While still in college, he began work as a coal miner with Hillman Coal and Coke Company. In 1938 he joined Pittsburgh Coal Company as an engineer, rising through the ranks of a chief mining engineer and divisional engineer. He joined Buckeye Coal Company in 1947 as chief engineer of coal mines and later served as chief engineer for Island Creek Coal Company in Holden, West Virginia. In 1951 he joined the Frick District of United States Steel Corporation as a district mining engineer, advancing to chief engineer and general superintendent of the Frick District. In 1958 he was named vice president in charge of coal operations for U.S. Steel Corporation, including operations in Alabama, Colorado, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah and West Virginia.

He retired in 1976 and became an adjunct professor of mining engineering at Penn State. His citations for both honorary membership in AIME and for the Erskine Ramsay Medal emphasized two major hallmarks for his career: promoting mine safety and assisting younger engineers to develop their full potential. Under his leadership, U.S. Steel developed a well-respected, comprehensive coal mine safety program. The lead article in the Wall Street Journal for January 19, 1973, cited U.S. Steel and Core for establishing the best safety record in underground coal mines. Core continually stressed that a safe mine was also a very productive mine. He was also known to be a strong mentor and an excellent role model for young professionals. This was manifested not only at the corporate level but also by his service as an active member of the Old Timer’s Club, which gives yearly awards to outstanding seniors in mining engineering at many of the country’s leading universities. His assistance as an adjunct professor at Penn State is another example of his desire to help younger engineers.

He was active in many professional societies and groups, including the SME Coal Division of the American Mining Congress and was a past president of the Coal Mining Institute of American and of the Mine Inspectors Institute of America. He was co-founder and first chairman of the Keystone Bituminous Coal Association, a member of the National Mine Rescue Association, the American Iron and Steel Institute, and the Rocky Mountain Coal Mining Institute. He was a registered first-grade coal mine foreman. Core was the king engineer who was interested in many phases of engineering. This interest quickly translated into a love of railroads and railroading and the history of coal mining, geology, and Native American art. Core donated his collections of minerals and paintings of mining scenes to the Penn State’s Earth and Mineral Sciences Museum.

Core was active in the Boy Scouts of America, chairman of the Catholic Committee for Scouting for the Diocese of Pittsburgh and received the Silver Beaver and the St. George Awards for his service to Scouting. He was appointed to President Carter’s Commission on Coal at Penn State. Core was married for 51 years to Margaret, who predeceased him in 1992. He has two daughters and three grandchildren.

Eugene Cummings currently serves as President of Eugene M. Cummings, P.C., a Chicago-based law firm engaged in the practice of intellectual property law. Mr. Cummings founded the firm in 1981 and remains actively involved in all matters handled by the firm, including a substantial portfolio of a contingent fee patent licensing and litigation matters.

Cummings was first employed in the broadcast industry as a transmitter and station engineer at a commercial 5KW AM broadcast station while in high school, and as Chief Engineer of a commercial AM broadcast station while studying electrical engineering at Northwestern. His first involvement in aviation also began at that time, when he obtained his commercial pilot license.

Following graduation, Cummings was employed by Zenith Radio Corporation first as a color television design engineer, then as a registered Patent Agent while attending Law School. Following graduation, he accepted employment with United Airlines, where he served as a co-pilot on the Boeing 727 until he was furloughed two years later as a result of a downturn in airline flying. It would not be until eight years later that he would return to United, eventually becoming a Captain on the Boeing 727, while at the same time practicing patent law.

In 1973, Cummings left Zenith to join a Chicago-based patent law firm, becoming a partner in that firm three years later. It was during this time that he founded Telesonics Systems, Inc., for the purpose of developing a system for broadcasting stereo sound along with U.S. standard color television broadcasts. After extensive testing, the Telesonics system was selected over competing systems as the national standard, and, after extensive litigation, was licensed to the consumer electronics industry. Following this success, Cummings undertook a number of other contingent-fee licensing projects, including licensing DVD technology to the consumer electronics industry.

More recently, Cummings founded Automark Technical Systems, Inc., for the purpose of developing a voting machine having touch-screen and audio user interfaces to enable a blind or otherwise disabled voter to mark a pre-printed paper ballot. Over 50,000 Automark terminals were manufactured and sold to election jurisdictions in 37 states.

Initiated Chapter
University of Wisconsin, 1960

Family
Wife: June, Children- John, Deborah

Experience
In a career spanning almost 33 years, Lyle G. Hassebroek has been instrumental in developing newer and better systems for wastewater treatment and hazardous waste disposal.

A 1963 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison in civil engineering, Hassebroek joined CH2M HILL, Inc., a small consulting engineering firm in Corvallis, Oregon, the same year. Hassebroek joined CH2M HILL’s Seattle office in 1965, and moved into positions of increasing responsibility, becoming regional manager of that office in 1978.

While in Seattle, Hassebroek organized CH2M HILL’s first environmental sciences work, including its first water quality laboratory. He also helped develop improved waste treatment systems for several Washington cities and developed water quality studies for area watersheds.

In the mid 1970s, Hassebroek returned temporarily to his home state of Wisconsin to direct a wastewater treatment and sludge utilization program for the Madison Metropolitan Sewerage District. This program, which uses sludge as fertilizer for local farmers, has served as a model for cities and utilities across the nation.

Hassebroek was promoted to CH2M HILL’s Northwest District Manager in 1980 and Eastern District Manager in 1983, the latter appointment taking him to Atlanta, Georgia, where he was responsible for company operations in 22 states. He became active in CH2M HILL’s hazardous waste services which have included projects involving the EPA Superfund Program and the DOE Environmental Restoration Program.

In 1990, after 27 years with the company, Hassebroek became president of CH2M HILL, Inc., headquartered in Denver. As president, he was responsible for the overall operations of a consulting engineering firm with more than 4,000 employees in over 50 locations throughout the U.S. Lyle retired in 1996 following a long and extremely productive career.

The scrapbook created by coworkers emphasized his mentoring, giving encouragement and guidance with a genuine interest in each individual. One of the firm leaders said, “a person can learn skills for being a top-notch engineer but leadership must be learned as well as earned and implemented with the heart.” This was Lyle’s strength.

Before and after retirement, Lyle welcomed continued connection to the University of Wisconsin and was honored for his work on “Institute for Environmental Studies-Board of Visitors 1995–2000.” Also, the College of Engineering presented an award to him as a member of “VISION 2000 Committee.”

After retirement, Lyle and high school sweetheart/wife June Ann moved back to the Seattle, WA area where their grown son and daughter had remained during their moves for CH2M Hill.

The protection, beautification and enjoyment of the out-of-doors is important to all of Lyle’s family. Long-time friends encouraged Lyle to step in as President of the Bellevue Botanical Garden Society. Both Lyle and June Ann love gardening and the Society was eager for his management skills as well. Under Hassebroek’s leadership, the Board created a Mission Statement, developed the Trillium logo and installed many of the leadership methods that worked well at CH2M HILL.

Returning to Triangle reunions and reaching out to “brothers” has been welcomed and heart-warming.

A registered professional engineer in seven states, Hassebroek was a member of the American Public Works Association, the Water Pollution Control Federation and Chi Epsilon National Civil Engineering Honor Society. He and his wife, June Ann, are natives of Wisconsin and have two grown children and four grandchildren.

Initiated Chapter
South Dakota Mines, 1953

Family
Wife: Mary | Children: Marshall & Michael

Experience
Dean Peterson, engineer, and inventor was personally responsible for two of the 20th century’s greatest consumer products revolutions. Born and raised in South Dakota, he attended Northern State Teachers College for two years before transferring to the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, earning a BS from SDSM&T in 1954 as a member of Triangle.  He went to work for Eastman Kodak after graduation and serving two years in the Army.

Peterson’s invention and development of the Kodak Instamatic® camera in the 1960’s heralded an unprecedented explosion in amateur snapshot photography.  With over 80,000,000 units sold by 1970, there were few American households without an Instamatic.

In the 1970’s, Peterson was principally responsible for many of the innovations that made possible the “point and shoot” camera revolution.  Automatic focus, off-the-film metering, auto advance and built-in self-quenching flash:  all were brand-new and all were featured on the “Project Beehive” camera developed by Peterson and his team and introduced by Honeywell at Photokina in 1972. The technologies from the “beehive” camera continue to resonate throughout the photography, digital photography, cinematography and video industries.

For his accomplishments in the field, Dean was one of four named Fellows of the Society of Photographic Scientists and Engineers in 1975.  He also received accolades from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers and the Society of Plastic Engineers.  He received the Distinguished Alumni Award from SDSM&T in 2000 and was posthumously named to the Aberdeen Central High School Hall of Fame in only the second year of its existence in 2007.

But his influence went well beyond the photography business.  He was personally responsible for the development two of most successful products in the history of Fisher-Price Toys: their childproof audiocassette recorder and phonograph, both introduced in the 1980s.  He designed a number of important advanced products for the medical industry, and developed a variety of patented methods for improving manufacturing processes, saving manufacturers hundreds of millions of dollars over the course of his career.  He developed the first and only successful 3D consumer film camera, the first high-speed video camera for scientific motion analysis, and provided the mechanical design for the world’s first tablet computer.  Overall, nearly 80 patents bear his name.

Throughout his life, Dean’s passions were fly-fishing and golf, and he invented advanced products for both.  Perhaps his all-time favorite invention was the Morgan Reel™, a single-action fly reel featuring a unique, infinitely-variable drag mechanism which can never be damaged by sand or grit, superior ergonomics, and the ability to operate either with the characteristic “click” familiar in most fly reels or completely silently.

In spite of his professional accomplishments, Dean never considered himself in any way extraordinary.  He was an Elder in the Presbyterian Church and played a key role in the creation of two start-up churches in Pittsford, New York, and Littleton, Colorado. First and foremost, he was a devoted husband, father, brother and friend.  His family and friends miss him very much indeed: his sense of humor, his work ethic, and his concern for his family and community.

During this time as a professor and research scientist, he published 26 technical papers, received a meritorious civilian award from the U.S. Naval Ordnance Laboratory for research in semiconductor technology and received the Browder – Thompson, IEEE award for best research paper by an author under 30 years of age. He was one of few Americans to become a Fellow in BOTH the American Physical Society and the IEEE.

Dr. Petritz was recruited to join Texas Instruments as the Director of their Semiconductor R & D lab. While in that position Dr. Petritz supervised over 300 technical personnel and as deputy director, oversaw Jack Kilby and the invention of the Integrated Circuit.

In 1969 he and a TI colleague formed New Business Resources, the first U.S. venture capital company to focus exclusively on start-up, high-technology businesses. Dr. Petritz went on to serve as President of two companies: Mostek which developed DRAM memories and some of the earliest microprocessors to be commercially available; and Linolex Systems, recognized by the Boston Computing Society as the first true personal computer. Dr. Petritz then provided the seed capital to start Inmos, a Colorado Springs-based semiconductor company. Inmos grew to $144,000,000 in sales and was sold to Thorn EMI, then again to ST Microelectronics.

Upon his exit from Inmos, he formed New Venture Resources and founded Simtek Corporation, of which he managed until his retirement in 1998. His venture capital activities spanned three decades and 21 companies. Simtek operates today as a publicly-traded semiconductor company in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Purdue, 1973

Family
Wife: Mary Ann

Experience
Purdue’s John M. Storm knows a thing or two about setting the standard for others to follow.  Maybe that is why John has been honored by everyone from Purdue University to the Society of Manufacturing Engineering.

In his first professional job out of the box, John’s innovations resulted in corporate annual savings of $6,000,000.  That’s right, 6 million dollars. In 1977, John started working as a process metallurgist for Detroit Diesel Allison, a division of General Motors.  John was in charge of testing a furnace the size of a small building.  The result was John being on the edge of creating a new industry standard for furnace applications.  John created a furnace application utilizing a methanol nitrogen atmosphere, which saved GM over 6 million dollars per year.

After that savings, John was provided a small staff and given the opportunity to work on whatever project he wanted to.  John decided to begin with creating an advanced computer-controlled heat treating process for gears.  This process eventually became the Micropulse Process, which GM declined to patent.  So in 1986, John and GM gear specialist Mike Chapin decided to patent the  Micropulse Process and go it alone and created Contour Hardening Inc.  Their goal for their company was to create a cost-effective solution to difficult heat treatment applications.

During the first five years of their business, they did not sell a single one of their large expensive machines.  In fact, John estimates losing between three and four million dollars.  But in 1990, Contour Hardening sold its first system to an overseas transmission manufacturer.  The rest fell into place from there.  Between June 1995 and January 1997, Contour Hardening Inc. had a 300% growth period.  In 2002, sales were $11 million.

This married father of two is also an avid race enthusiast and in 1997, for the first time in racing history, advanced hardening and process control technology was used, resulting in a first and second place win at the Indianapolis 500!  Arie Luyendyk crossed the finish line first and Scott Goodyear crossed second, both, using Contour Hardening’s patented gears, which are stronger, lighter than and twice as strong as the industry standards.  In 2001, CHI sponsored driver Sam Hornish, Jr. of Panther Racing who in 2001 won 3 IRL races and the 2001 IRL Championship.  CHI’s gear designs and induction gear hardening can be found in CART, Score (off-highway series) and FIA sanctioned race vehicles.

He then served in a variety of supervisory positions in engineering analysis and design. Wong was then assigned responsibility for the preliminary system design of the revolutionary avionics and missiles incorporated on the country’s new front line aircraft: F-108, YF-12, and F-14.

This was followed by a series of management assignments in Missile Systems, one of the major business sectors of Hughes. An initial assignment in Missile Advanced Design was followed by assuming responsibility for all activities in the acquisition of new business. He was subsequently promoted to President and General Manager of Missile Systems. In this period, this business unit secured a contract for one of the most significant new missile systems (AMRAAM) that is still in production after 30 years.
