When growing up near Toledo, Ohio, Jack developed a love for the outdoors as he and his family were active in the Boy Scouts and avid campers.  Jack graduated from Maumee, Ohio and went on to play football at Ohio Wesleyan where he majored in accounting.  He spent over thirty years as a supervisor for a logistics company in Indianapolis.

Jack and his wife relocated to Muncie where he found his dream job.  He became the Facilities Director at Camp Adventure in 2020 and takes pride in caring for the camp as well as organizing groups to visit.
