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. After high school, he developed several website businesses to "serve, help, and empower others." He studied at Dartmouth College before taking time off to focus on his entrepreneurial efforts. But Jack’s brilliant mind was suffering from clinical depression, and just after his 20th birthday he died from suicide. He is immensely missed by his family and friends, who were touched by his kindness, sharp intellect, and unique insight.
