Jack may be the proverbial Rocket Scientist "It Don't Take No[ne]" of. As a White Anglo-Saxon, hetero male from Alabama with a British/Irish heritage, and a practicing Christian, he cannot claim victimhood of any stripe. Born to be a scientist, he was fascinated by machinery from birth. After graduation in Physics, he joined NASA and helped put men on the Moon (yes, we really did go). Today, he would like nothing better than to help us go back.
Jack got into computers and software, and writes a column for Embedded Systems Development magazine. He is the author of "Math Toolkit for Embedded Systems Programmers."
His sister, Mary Ann, did live in New York, and wrote "Superbeauty" and "Over the Rainbow."
In earlier days, Jack raced cars and motorcycles, did spelunling, water skiing, gynmastics, and other fun pastimes. Under the insistence of one baby mockingbird, he developed a heart for animal rescue and rehab, and has raised countless birds, ducks, chickens, geese, etc., and your occasional opossum. Recently retired, he is moving back to FL with his wife and critters in tow.
