Jewett died Wednesday night at the age of 78, his son, Michael Jewett, said.
Jewett was a former educator at Tappan Middle School and a vendor of Adirondack chairs at the Ann Arbor Farmers Market.
“For us and our community at the Farmers Market, he was a beloved vendor. We love him and we’re very sad,” said Sarah DeWitt, manager of the Farmers Market. “On behalf of customers and on behalf of vendors, he will be missed.”
He started coming to the market in 1967, Dewitt said.
Jewett had a stroke Sunday night, according to an emailed message from Jewett’s wife in circulation Thursday announcing Jewett’s death, DeWitt said.
