After spending several vacations in Oregon, Jack and his family loved the Bend area so much they decided to make it their home!
Jack has been a meteorologist for over 30 years and has held the broadcast seal of approval from the National Weather Association (NWA) since 1984. He is no stranger to west coast weather having forecasted in California for over 10 years while also having stops in New York, Florida, Texas, Tennessee and Missouri. While in California he captured three Associated Press and two Golden Mike awards for best television weather broadcast. He also spent time working for AccuWeather and Baron Services where he received extensive training in severe weather forecasting.
Jack is married to his high school sweetheart Pam and they have a daughter in college and a married son in North Carolina.
Jack and his wife enjoy hiking, golf and fishing and look forward to taking advantage of the many outdoor opportunities central Oregon has to offer. He also loves to be involved in the local community as well as church activities.
A native of Tennessee, Jack grew up near Paris in the western portion of the state where he was a crappie fishing guide in high school. He attended Lambuth College and Mississippi State University where he completed his studies in broadcast meteorology.
