Jack left N.Y. when he was 16 years old. He went into home building and worked on many homes to the stars, including his favorite star Jeanette Mac Donald whom he became life-long friends with along with Leon Ames, Danny Thomas and the great composer, Igor Strawinsky. There were very few stars Jack did not meet over the years and as Danny Thomas once told him, you have pictures with more stars, Presidents, and sports figures than anyone in Hollywood.
