After moving from Chicago to Los Angeles at the age of four, Jack became a child actor and performed in various films including Best Foot Forward with Lucille Ball. He currently resides in Villa Park with his wife, Belle. Jack joined The Disney Company a few months after Disneyland opened and worked his way up until he became the first president of Disneyland, a position he never anticipated. After thirty-eight years with The Disney Company, he retired. He has spent the last few years writing his memoir and working as a consultant on various projects. He’s not sure that his retirement is actually a retirement. His next big project is to write another memoir called Before The Mouse, with the assistance of Ms. Combs.
