The Dicke Family

ONU patrons, the Dicke family

James F. Dicke attended ONU in 1939 before leaving to serve in World War II. After achieving global success by building Crown Equipment Company, one of the largest material handling equipment manufacturers in the world, he became one of Ohio Northern’s most significant supporters. His son, Jim II, and grandson, Jim III, have carried on the family tradition of providing vital support for student scholarships, facilities and innovative programs at Ohio Northern.
