He worked at Miller Motors, Franconi and then at Dodge City in Milwaukee where he became a 5 Star Chrysler Mechanic. At the same time he pursued his interests in music and acting.

Jack was a talented musician and actor and cultivated these interests throughout his life. He was an accomplished lead guitar and saxophone player and played several other instruments. Jack began performing publically while in Middle School as part of the Pine Street Trolley Band, and then performed with numerous other local bands where he developed his well-known Swineman persona.
