Our thoughts & prayers are with the Lightner family

WA Cornhuskers are sorry to inform you that our WA Cornhusker past president and former Scholarship Chair Jan Lightner’s husband, Gene has passed away. 

At Gene’s request, there will not be a service.  However, he and Jan would like to encourage anyone who would like to make a donation, please send it to the Gene E. Lightner Scholarship Fund, University of Nebraska Foundation, 1010 Lincoln Mall, Suite 300, Lincoln, NE 68508 or on-line at https://nufoundation.org/donate?fundId=01074740 - Gene E. Lightner, Ph.D. Scholarship

Gene Lightner was a Chemical Engineering major at UNL, where he received his BSc in 1953 and MSc in 1956.  He was active in his fraternity Delta Tau Delta and AIChE.  He served in the US Army and received his first patent (it’s what is now called FoamCore) in 1964.  He went back to school for his Ph.D. and had been involved in research ever since and holds around 40 US plus several foreign patents.  His most recent ones involved alternative fuels from bio-mass.  He decided several years ago to donate his patents to the University of Nebraska Foundation.  They offer them to professors for further development.  He was also a member of the American Chemical Society, the Instrument Society of America, Sigma Xi and American Men of Science. He won the Alumni Achievement Award from the Nebraska Alumni Association, participated in Master’s Week at UNL (sponsored by Mortar Board and Innocents), and served as President of UNL alumni chapters in St. Louis and Philadelphia and had been active in the WA Cornhuskers since 1977.
