Jack attended Welsh High School, graduating class of 1968. He married Carolyn Faye Adams and later joined the Air Force. Jack began fishing tournament circuits while in the military with the Flying Tiger Bass Club. He later traveled the US with his family for several years fishing various semi-pro tournaments ending his career as a proud member of the Southwest Bass Masters of Iowa.

Jack is survived by his loving wife, Faye, his two sons and daughters-in-law, Jud and Jessica, Joey and Michelle; his four grandsons, Davin, Bryce, Carter and Kase; his sister, Sharane Gott; and several nieces and nephews.

Jack was a lover of family and fishing. He met no strangers and touched many lives. Jack will be remembered for his love of corny jokes and tall tales.
