Jack teaches English, Language Arts, and US History at Fusion. He earned his Bachelor's degree from Illinois State University with a concentration in writing. Jack has enjoyed writing articles for music publications and blogs.
Prior to teaching at Fusion, Jack worked in the graphic arts industry and was a music curator for retail and private companies. His greatest gift was spending time at home with his daughter, Emerson during her early formative years. It would serve to foster his love of teaching and give him a new perspective about teaching and mentoring in a one to one framework like Fusion practices. When a relationship of trust and validation is formed and a student can be heard, the learning experience is deeply meaningful and enriching.
Jack is a lifelong drummer and when not teaching at Fusion can be found behind his kit, as well as in the kitchen where he likes to make pesto for his wife and daughter.
