My Elderly Space

A look at the remarkable lives of the elderly

 

World's oldest CEO

Jack Weil is the founder of Rockmount Ranch Wear. His ever popular Rockmount shirts have been worn by everyone from Elvis Presley in “Love Me Tender” to Heath Ledger in “Brokeback Mountain.”

At 107 years old, he is believed to be the oldest CEO in the world. He goes to work everyday in the same brick building that he started his business in, way back in 1946.

Famous for coining the phrase "The West is not a place, it is a state of mind.", he says he quit smoking at age 60, drinking at age 90 and eating red meat at 100. However, Mr. Weil says he has a shot of Jack Daniel's twice a week for "medicinal purposes."
