Jack was born and raised in a small town outside of Knoxville TN USA. Growing up without his father in the picture and with the difficulties being mixed in a small hillbilly town from a young age Jack had to help his mother support his younger sister Lilly. Throughout high school Jack somehow managed to juggle school and working at the railroad to support his family. In what spare time he could get he spent hanging out with his friend from the railroad Chris dreaming of ways to escape the small town life he had been given. He had spent the first 2 years after highschool training with a local national guard detachment but mostly spent his days there checking inventory and receiving deliveries.
One day Chris approached Jack with his latest get out of the small town life idea only this time it was one with which Jack chimed with....his mothers father had always been a railroad man and gotten him his position in the union. Jack took great pride in following in his grandfathers footsteps...and now here Chris was presenting him with an opportunity to travel the world and continue working in a job that he enjoyed doing. It was an open position to fly to Chernarus instructing the locals how to manage and run the new locomotive line that had been built through their country, Thanks to some contracts the Railworker Union had managed to come through on and some calls to some higher ups from his grandfather it was no time before Jack was confirmed in the position and travel plans were made...an estatic Jack lands in Chernarus where a taxi takes him into Cherno where he plans to stay the weekend before continuing on into Elektro the following Monday where he would begin his new life in a new place...only..Monday never came.
Well it did you see but the world has gone Topsy turvy Jack is woken early Monday `17th of July by the sounds of explosions and people shouting, looking down at the streets from his Hotels window he stares in horror watching men tearing others apart and...eating them! Panicked Jack does not know what to do other then barricade himself in his room with what little supplies he has a few bags of his favorite jerky and a few bottles of water Jack hunkers down for a week before he wanders out in search of others or just...water)
