 From Fortune magazine, in 1998:

"Today Tramiel is basically retired and managing his money. From four
residences, he's cut down to one, a palatial house atop a foothill
in Monte Sereno, Calif." So he may still be around.
only found five Tramiel in CA but no Jack, and I don't remember
his sons' names at the moment, but he had two (?) working at
Atari back in the day.

Now, is Gould still alive?
