His class year of graduation from high school was 1962, and his high school of graduation was Proviso East High School in Maywood, Illinois. While he was working at Jewel in Addison with his best buddy Jim Snyder, he met the acquaintance of Patricia, the lady with whom he would spend the rest of his life.

He earned a degree in Business Administration, Management and Operations while he was a student at Elmhurst College in Elmhurst, Illinois. The college is located in the same name as the city.
Elmhurst is the home of Elmhurst College, which may be found there. In order to save enough money for his education, Jack held full-time jobs at the Jewel Tea Co., a Texaco gas station, and door-to-door sales of Watkin’s items. He also sold Watkin’s products at a flea market. He exerted a great deal of effort so that he would be able to pay for his schooling. Since he started working for the company thirty years ago, he has enjoyed a prosperous career, and a significant portion of his accomplishments are down to the dogged determination and rock-solid work ethic he possesses.
