Jack taught school in Plains before serving 12 years as principal at Smyer and Sands (Ackerly) High School. He moved his family back to Plains in 1978 where he became a strong contributor to the agriculture industry in Yoakum County and the region as both the owner/operator of an aerial applicator business and as a farmer.
