Hi I'm Jack

I grew up in Texas. I'm adopted. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I spent the first 13 years of my life in the Houston, Texas area where I was surrounded by family. Many of my fondest childhood memories are during this time. Playing football and baseball with friends was such a great and exciting time in my life. I soon moved to Arizona where I still reside. Over the years, I have grown to love Arizona and the people of this wonderful state. In High School I had many friends who where Mormon. As I moved on into adulthood, I continued to nurture this relationship with members of the LDS faith. I soon was baptized a member and shortly after, my wife and I where sealed in the Arizona Temple. We have three beautiful children. Our oldest is serving a mission in Winnipeg, Canada at this time while our other two are still in school.

Why I am a Mormon

There are many reasons I am a Mormon. As a convert, I truly enjoyed the family aspect of the church and what it offered. As an outsider looking in, I could truly appreciate the examples in my life. The togetherness, the love for one another and the desire to spend time as a family doing wholesome activities was so appealing.. As a member now for 24 years, and raising my own kids in the church, I appreciate all that is thought by our leaders even more. I worry about my kids and the future that is in store for them. WE are blessed to have such great friends and being surrounded by individuals who desire for the same things in life. So greatful for the love of a wonderful wife and best friend. She is always an example to me and our children.

How I live my faith

I have always enjoyed serving others. I continue to seek out ways to give service. As a home teacher, and as a leader in different organizations within the church, I have learned that, for me, this is the most import thing I can do to live my faith.
