Throughout Jacks life, he worked for Abby Rentals, the Blackfoot Police Department, US Department of Agriculture, McALVAIN and ESI, he worked as an investigator for the FBI doing background check for high clearance positions, and after retirement he would drive truck during the harvest for local farmers.
Jack loved hunting, fishing and anything that allowed him to be outside with the animals or tinkering with stuff around the property. He enjoyed mowing the lawn and loved giving his grandkids rides on his John Deere lawn mower. He also loved helping the 4-H Dairy kids with their projects.
Jack loved his family and his grandchildren very much and was a man who made and kept friends wherever he went.
