Bio

While Jack’s worked in greeting cards since 1970 – 35 years at American Greetings where he finished as Senior Art Director and 5 years with Recycled Paper Greetings – he’s learned one paramount lesson: his wife knows best.

At age 5, Jack discovered he couldn’t count or spell, but could draw just a little. And so began his artistic career – one from which he’s never looked back. When he grows up, Jack wants to drum for Paul McCartney. Until then, he is content to spend his free time in his garden with spade in hand.

Fun Fact

At 64, Jack ran his first marathon. Now 68, with many marathons under his belt, he’s still running.
