Jack was a graduate of Wilbur Wright High School in Dayton. He played varsity basketball and played in the City of Dayton championship game and was named to the all-city teams.

He then operated his own firm before merging it into the firm Hoke, Cashdollar and Hicks, CPA’s. He was a member of the American Institute of CPA’s, the Ohio Society of CPA’s, VFW, Moose Lodge and USTA. Jack was a co-founder and volunteer for many years for the Developmental Center for Handicapped Children as treasurer and board member.

A notation at the entrance at Wimbledon has a Kipling quote, “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two impostors just the same;” you can have a balanced life.
