Before Mr. Whittemore began his professional career, he earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Nathaniel Hawthorne College in Antrim, New Hampshire and graduated magna cum laude from programming school. Datamann, Inc financed Mr. Whittemore’s education because of his pivotal role in the field and requirements and developments were changing and requiring more from professionals.

Mr. Whittemore’s impressive repertoire of previous roles served were Computer Programmer at the Cross Company in Hartford, Vermont, Senior Programmer with Joy Manufacturing and Computac LLC, and as Programming Manager at Datamann, Inc until he retired.

Throughout his employment as a Computer Programmer, Mr. Whittemore was recognized for his commitment and efficiency of his work within his field. In past years, he graced the front cover of TIP (Top Industry Professionals) Magazine and was featured on the famous Reuters building in Times Square, NYC.  He was the recipient of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award given by Marquis Who’s Who.  Mr. Whittemore has been featured in numerous publications including Who’s Who in Finance and Industry, the 21st edition of Who’s Who in the East, several editions of Who’s Who in the World, the sports section of the Eagle Times, and In The Valley News.

Mr. Whittemore won the First Place Gold Medal in the long jump, triple jump and 100-meter dash events at the 2018 National Senior Games in Vermont.  He also qualified for and attended every National Senior Games since 1995.  He ran the Boston Marathon in 1961 and holds the record in Claremont for the most consecutive days gone running, the second longest in the state of New Hampshire. After struggling with four heart attacks, a blood transfusion, and asthma, he limited himself to short distance running, long jumps and triple jumps.

Mr. Whittemore says his greatest accomplishment has been surviving 4 heart attacks while still training to do the Triple Jump where he received the Silver Medal and he jumped far enough to be number 4 overall of all the Senior Games ever held.  His record wasn’t broken in 2015 2017 or 2019.  He is still Number 4 and also #10 in the world and tied for #2 in the USA.  The greatest thrill for him was that his wife Lillian was able to see it.

For the future, he hopes to continue to be a competitive sports enthusiast and hopes his story of remaining active and defying the odds with his heart condition at 83 years old will enlighten and inspire people to never give up.  In his spare time, he enjoys running, chess, softball, reading, bicycling, playing cribbage and spending time with his wife Lois and daughter Debbie. Mr. Whittemore attributes his success to his education, mentors he has had along the way, such as John Mann, and staying passionate in all his endeavors.
