He attended the University of California at Berkeley, where he graduated. During his time at UC Berkeley, he was a substitute announcer on AM radio station KROW.

In 1988, he was diagnosed with bone cancer. On July 21, 1988, Jack passed away at the age of 62. Pat Sajak eulogized Jack at the beginning of the 1988-89 season of Wheel.
