Jack was born in Florida and grew up in Chicago, Illinois. He joined the Air Force at a young age and later followed in his Father's footsteps and became a Newspaper Pressman. He retired after 40 years in this line of work. He was an artist and had a true passion for drawing. He was a fantastic cartoonist, landscape and still art painter. He enjoyed making stoneware crafts and jewelry for many. He had a gift to make people laugh and feel comfortable and loved. One of his finest memories is that of being "Buckets the Clown" for the Shriner's organization. It was during this period of blessed service that Jack painted the "Wall of Clowns" in the Clown's unit room at the original Houston Arabia Shrine Temple, which was admired by all. In addition to being an active member and Past Master Mason of Willis San Jacinto Masonic Lodge #106, Jack made lifelong friends as member of the following organizations and charitable foundations:

Order of Eastern Star, Conroe Chapter #710; Arabia Shriner's; Scottish Rite; Knights Templar; York Rite; and The American Legion.
