He received his J.D. cum laude from Regent University where he was Managing Editor of the Regent University Law Review, and his B.A. magna cum laude from Saint Leo University.
Jack enjoys hanging out with his wife and nine children, scotch and cigars with good friends, the intersection of theology and cosmology, anything nautical, and singing really loudly (and slightly off key) to classic rock on the car radio.
