About Jack
A 2017 graduate of Hatboro-Horsham High School, Jack was president of the National Honor Society and an accomplished runner on the Cross Country and Track teams. He earned a National Merit Letter of Commendation and was an AP Scholar with Distinction. After High School, Jack developed and founded three businesses with the goal of helping others. He studied at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire before taking time off to travel. Jack played chess from a young age and would take on any challengers. He also had a great love of the outdoors and wildlife and enjoyed hiking with family and friends. On his website, Jack stated that his purpose was to “serve, help, and empower others.” He is immensely missed by his family and friends, whom he helped greatly with his sharp intellect, kindness, and unique insight.
