A Story of Two Savers

This is a story of California teachers Jack and Jill.  In Jack's younger years he decided to spend more money and put off saving until his thirties. When he turned 37 he decided to save. He thought of his family and future, and saved every year until he retired at 70.  In Jill's younger years, she began to save immediately, but  after 15 years she stopped and never saved again. Jill saved 15 years and Jack saved 33... who do you think had more at retirement?
