Jack Lindquist was the first president of the Disneyland amusement park in Anaheim, California from 1990 until he retired in 1993. He was a Disney employee from 1955 until his retirement, and was a marketing executive in the theme parks division for almost thirty years, including a stint as the first advertising manager for Disneyland.
After Lindquist retired, he received a commemorative window on Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland that reads "J.B. Lindquist, Honorary Mayor of Disneyland". In 1994, he was named a Disney Legend. A pumpkin with Jack's face can also be found in Goofy's garden at Mickey's Toontown and a dancing coffee mug with his face could be seen in the Celebration USA parade.
In 2010, Lindquist's memoir entitled: In Service to the Mouse: My Unexpected Journey to Becoming Disneyland's First President was published by Chapman University Press/Neverland Media.
