Early life and education
Jack was raised in Prairie du Sac by their parents, about whom not a lot is known as Jack respects their privacy; it’s believed that their father was a car mechanic, and their mother a nurse. Because they haven’t spoken about their siblings, most people believe Jack to be an only child.
The family eventually moved to Sauk City, Wisconsin, where Jack was bullied by his peers because he was a ‘little gay kid’; they’ve since revealed that they’re indeed gay, and that they use pronouns they/them. They were 13 years old when they were taught by a dancing teacher influenced by the late American modern dancer and choreographer Martha Graham, and it was around this time that Jack knew they wanted to become a professional dancer.
They studied at a local high school and for their senior year, attended Interlochen Arts Academy, from which they matriculated in 1997.
Roles in movies
Jack made their debut film appearance in the 1999 romantic comedy drama “Outside Providence”, written and directed by Michael Corrente, and which starred Shawn Hatosy, Amy Smart and Alec Baldwin. It tells the story of a frustrated father who’s sent his troublesome teenager to a prep school, and the movie was nominated for a Las Vegas Film Critics Society Sierra Award for Best Supporting Actor (Alec Baldwin).
Jack starred as Jesse Milton in the 2001 short comedy “Mean People Suck”, and then played Phil in the 2001 drama “Way Off Broadway”. They portrayed Oscar in the 2008 short comedy “Doghouse”, and then played the supporting character Jamie in the 2012 romantic comedy drama “Gayby”; it was written and directed by Jonathan Lisecki, starred Jean Harris, Anna Margaret Hollyman and Matthew Wilkas, and follows two friends Matt and Jenn who are in their 30s, and have decided to have a child together, even though Matt’s gay.
