Jack Hanna, who was hired almost 42 years ago as director of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, is retiring at the end of this year. Hanna’s love for animals, charm and work as a television personality has made him one of the world’s most recognizable wildlife ambassadors and conservationists.

John “Jack” Hanna, the boy from Knoxville known for his love of animals, khaki attire and the ability to charm everyone he encounters, is retiring after transforming Columbus’ dilapidated zoo into one of the world’s best. He was named the 2014 East Tennessean of the Year by the East Tennessee Historical Society.
