Jack is originally from Libertyville, Illinois, a northern suburb of Chicago. After graduating high school, Jack earned a bachelors of arts in communications studies from the University of Michigan. In college, Jack got his first experience in television while working with the student television station WOLV-TV. He also worked with Big Ten Student U, NBC Sports Chicago, and Beyond HS Sports Videography before graduation.

From there, he entered the television industry at KMOT TV in Minot, North Dakota covering a variety of sports and news topics. Jack is proud to bring the experience he learned in one of televisions most physically demanding markets back to Michiana.

In his spare time, Jack likes to stay active by playing tennis and other sports with friends. He loves to cook and try out new recipes.
