Re: Marion Zinderstein Jessup

Her son just recently died-he was born 17 June 1929.

John B Jessup Jr

Posted: Sunday, May 4, 2014 6:00 am

John B. Jessup Jr., of Homestead Manor in Denton, after many years in St. Michaels, died after battling heart disease at age 84.
Born in Philadelphia and raised in Wilmington, Del., he graduated from Middlesex School in Massachusetts as a National Merit Scholar. A Phi Beta Kappa at Princeton University, he graduated magna cum laude.

After Officer Candidate School for the Army, Mr. Jessup worked for the Intelligence Community, began an industrious banking career in Philadelphia, diversified into real estate in Easton, handling the first sale of the Tidewater Inn, and returned to banking in Easton, retiring as office manager and assistant vice president at Loyola Federal/Sun Trust.

Highly civic-minded, Mr. Jessup played a leadership role in the Talbot River Protection Association, Widgeon Place Owners Association, Talbot County Charter Commission, Free Library Board, YMCA and Board of Realtors. An Elder of Easton’s Presbyterian Church, he sang in its choir from 1967 to 2005.

Mr. Jessup’s father was a prominent banker and civic leader in Delaware and his mother, Marion Zinderstein Jessup, a top-ranked tennis player, won an Olympic medal. His uncle, Philip C. Jessup, served as the U.S. Representative to the United Nations and as a judge on the International Court of Justice.

Mr. Jessup will be sorely missed for his sense of humor, creative writing, including poems about co-residents in Denton, keen appreciation of music, and community leadership.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy Ruth Ball.

Mr. Jessup is survived by his son, Norton Edward; daughter, Lisbeth Jordan; two grandchildren, Nicholas Edward Jessup and Jerald Jessup Jordan; and sister, Nancy (Mrs. A. Judson Wells).

A memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 7, 2014, at the Presbyterian Church in Easton.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Mr. Jessup may be made to Princeton University or the Presbyterian Church in Easton.

Re: Marion Zinderstein Jessup

On the link below her grandson Richard (who says he discussed her career with his grandmother) refutes the notion she was Jewish.

If you find us here in Blast please come in Richard-we would love to hear about your grandmother!

Marion Hall Jessup (née Zinderstein) was not Jewish.
She was an Episcopalian. I am her grandson. I’ve done extensive work on her side of the family. My Zinderstein ancestor (Marion’s grandfather) emigrated from Prussia in the middle of the 19th century and came to the States. He was a Lutheran. Not all names ending in “stein” are Jewish.
Marion Hall (Zinderstein) Hall died in 1979 and was a regular communicant of the Anglican Church from which she was buried. My grandmother and I talked often about her career and her background.

Re: Marion Zinderstein Jessup

This Vanity Fair article from 1922 gives a good and brief description of her game. She had all the shots, including good volleys, overhead, and serve. A proficient net game was rare for this era. It was these weapons that made her feared in doubles-where she won 4 US doubles crowns.

Her one major weakness was a tendency to get nervous. This often led to a slew of errors, especially double faults. She served 19 double faults against Molla Mallory in the 1920 US final.

Her greatest singles event was the 1919 US Nationals. She beat Molla (the #1 player at that time) in the semifinals before going out to Hazel Wigtman in the final.

Re: Marion Zinderstein Jessup

The announcement of her engagement-from a 1920 issue of American Lawn Tennis.
