Jack was born on June 28th, 1954, in Cooter, Missouri to William C. and Ida Jones. He graduated from Gibson High School, Gibson, Tennessee in 1972. After moving to Corinth, Mississippi in 1973, Jack began working for Gardner's Super Market from 1973 through 1977. In 1978, Jack began working for Liberty National Life Insurance Company as an agent, and later as an independent life agent for Lamar Life of Jackson, Mississippi and Great Southern Life in Dallas, Texas and Kansas City Life in Kansas, City Kansas. Jack won several awards as a life insurance salesman which included travel abroad.

Jack was an accomplished golfer and from his early 20s through his late 40s often played a great scratch game. Jack was an individual who loved teasing his family and friends and who was passionate about fishing (as long as he got to sit in the front of the boat). He was, for many years, an active and dedicated member of the Elks Lodge in Corinth, Mississippi and often volunteered at many of the Elk fundraisers.
