He graduated from Greenfield High School, then he honorably served his country in the United States Air Force. While serving, he was an elite member of a top secret and highly classified mission in Alaska. Jack was a devoted member of Smyrna United Methodist Church, and a Mason with lodge #375.

He truly enjoyed listening to country music and Elvis songs. Later in life when he had more free time he enjoyed driving cars for Century Buick and Dick Smith Chevrolet. In his free time loved being a dare devil and waterskiing, driving fast in his F150, going on roller coasters, waterslides, and zip lines. He even went skydiving for his 80th birthday. He loved watching his children and grandchildren grow up, and spending time in the mountains with his wife Jean. Jack was a true southern gentleman who was generous and lived his life to the fullest.
