David J Hanson Obituary

David Hanson, 88, of Vernon Hills, born on July 9, 1935, at Mercy Hospital, Oshkosh, Wl, died on June 10, 2024 at Condell Hospital, Libertyville, IL. The son of Daniel J. and Orabelle (Eggersgluess) Hanson, he graduated from Oshkosh High School in 1953. He went to Wisconsin State College, Whitewater, where he earned his B. Ed. in 1957 and Indiana University for his MBA in 1958. He spent the next 23 months in the army and was stationed in the Research Contracting Office, Fort Eustis, VA, after basic training.


Following his military service, he taught 32 1/2 years for District 125 in Lake County, Illinois. After 5 years at Ela-Vernon High School in Lake Zurich, he was one of the original faculty members of the new Adlai E. Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire. In his career he taught every business subject, specializing in Economics and Business Law for his last 15 years.


He is survived by his wife, Jane Anne, whom he married in 1976. He is also survived by a cousin, Nancy (Jeff) Jordan of Wisconsin; and sister-in-law Amy (Barry) Coulter of Wisconsin.


Those who knew him will remember his quirky sense of humor and his love of travel. He visited the first 49 states and more than 50 foreign countries.


David's burial service will be at 12:00 noon on Friday June 14th at Willow Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery, 24090 North Hwy 45, Vernon Hills, Illinois. Donations in his memory may be made to Stevenson High School Foundation, 2 Stevenson Drive, Lincolnshire, IL 60069, or the charity of choice.
