Jack Hetherington retired after 35 years on the MSU Physics & Astronomy faculty. Since then, he has become interested in the artistic possibilities of representing mathematical functions and graphs, as explained in [this Lansing City Pulse article from June 8, 2016](http://lansingcitypulse.com/article-13266-Meet-the-artist.html).

In addition to his more traditional scientific and educational accomplishments, he is noted for his association with [F.D.C. Willard](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F.D.C._Willard), the story of which has become an Internet meme.
