Jack was born on November 17, 1921 in Inola, Oklahoma. He grew up and was raised on the Indian Reservation in Claremore, Oklahoma where he attended school. Jack served his country proudly, serving in the United States Army. After he received his honorable discharge he worked for the Union Pacific Railroad until his retirement. After retirement, Jack worked for TGY in Coffeyville and also provided security for the high school from time to time. But the one thing he will be remember most for was the twenty one years he served as a crossing guard for Edgewood Elementary School.

In October of 2013, Lois preceded him in death. Jack and Lois were members of Grace Fellowship Church for many years. The two of them loved to dance, and everyone around them enjoyed watching. They took the kids on countless memorable trips to Branson, Missouri and Harbor Village in Grove, Oklahoma. Jack was very proud of his Cherokee Indian background. He enjoyed going to local PowWows from time to time. He was a lifetime member of the VFW, and was a member of the 32nd Masonic Lodge in Claremore, Oklahoma.
