At a community dance near Chicago, Jack met the love of his life and future wife of 56 years, Kathleen Mucha. They were married on September 9, 1967. While in Chicago, Jack completed a Tool and Die apprenticeship at Ford Motor Company and attended Purdue University receiving a degree in Vocational Education. In 169, his daughter, Michelle, was born. The call of Colorado was strong, and in 1971 they moved to Pueblo where Jack taught at Southern Colorado State College, and his son, Chris was born in 1972. The family moved to Loveland, in 1973. Jack taught Machine Shop at Larimer County Voc-Tech Center, (now Front Range Community College).

He loved spending time in the mountains with family and playing cards with friends. Kathy and Jack were passionate about travel and enjoyed touring and camping in their RV.

They never missed a wedding, celebration or invitation no matter where in the world it took place like; Ecuador, Australia, Croatia, Alaska and Hawaii, to name a few.  He was lifelong teacher who showed countless people how to cast a fly, shoot an arrow, learn to ski, woodwork, or tell a story.
