His dad is currently stationed in Miramar, Ca., as the base commander of Air Station Miramar. Jack has stayed in Stafford to finish high school at North Stafford, where he is currently in the top 10 percent of his class. He says, "It's difficult being so far from my father, but I know his work is important and, as a member of a military family, I realize it requires sacrifice." Jack is a Cadet Lt. Col. in JROTC and is the commander of his unit. He spends between 1 and two hours after school each day working with his cadets on drill, leadership and teamwork.

He has competed in the national championships four times and took two gold medals in 2011. Jack is a senior and is taking 5 AP classes. He intends to go to college at UC Irvine to pursue a career in law, possibly in the military as an officer in the JAG Corps.
