Jack began working with Alex's Saints Foundation in May 2020. Jack has been working alongside the rest of the foundation and leads the Education initiatives and activities to organize yearly statistics and research regarding opioids and overdoses in surrounding areas and nationally.
Jack's connection to Alex comes tied together from many different ropes. With independent friendships with Foundation members like Glen Kozeli, Hannah Callis and Tyler Bettelon, it was only a matter of time until Alex's gravitational pull drew Jack into his orbit in their late high school careers. Jack and Alex were always in close connection: the afternoons and nights were spent working together as valet and parking cars while the nights were either spent in the cul-de-sac of Dina Drive or out at another show. Since the passing of Alex, Jack has made it a goal be able to assist those in need who are fighting the opioid epidemic.
