From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

John R. "Jack" Pfeifer (1934–2009) was a prominent vascular surgeon and local leader in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) in Michigan.

Pfeifer was born and raised in Saskatchewan, Canada. He earned his medical degree from the University of Saskatchewan. After doing his residency in Hawaii, Pfeifer practiced in Ontario before moving to Michigan where he had a private practice in Southfield and was a department head at Providence Hospital.[1] He assisted in forming the Midwestern Vascular Surgical Society and was elected Secretary at its founding meeting in 1977. He later became the society's archivist and historian.[2] The New York Daily News described him in 1995 as a consultant and high-level distributor for the dietary supplement company IDN, a subsidiary of the multi-level marketing firm Nu Skin International.[3] From 2000 to 2007 Pfeifer was a professor at the medical school of the University of Michigan.[1] The University of Michigan's John R. Pfeifer Collegiate Professorship in Vascular Surgery, named in his honour, was established in 2011.[4]

Pfeifer was a member of the LDS Church and served as president of the church's Bloomfield Hills Michigan Stake for much of the 1970s.
