Born in Troy on August 14, 1947, he was the son of the late Harry and Marie Trueson Chriss, and the stepson of the late Sylvia T. Chriss. Jack was raised in Green Island and was a graduate of Heatly School. He was a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War and a proud member of the Green Island American Legion Post. He was also a graduate of the radiology program at Hudson Valley Community College in Troy. Jack was employed in the X-ray departments of several area hospitals, most recently Albany Medical Center, where he worked for 25 years as a medical imaging technician.

Jack was the beloved father of Binnie-Ayn Chriss (Randy R. Pierre) of Schenectady and grandfather of Randy R. Pierre II and Taylor E. Pierre. He was the brother of Danforth Chriss of Waterford, the late Carol Chriss Corey, and Frank Dewey of New Mexico.
