He spent his youth in Fort Worth before moving to El Campo with his mother and stepfather (Teb Reddell) in 1960. Jack was a member of the Class of 1963 at El Campo High School, where he played basketball and baseball, and was a member of the 1962 State Championship Baseball Team.

Jack opened Sports-N-Things in 1979, and was a constant supporter and contributor to El Campo High School athletics, El Campo Little League and the Wharton County Youth Fair.

After retiring in 2005, Jack and Stepha moved to Sun City in Georgetown, Texas, where Jack enjoyed many rounds of golf (and four hole-in-ones) and made many new friends. Jack and Stepha enjoyed traveling the world and spending time with their three grandchildren.
