He was a man who practiced what he preached, and he believed that comprehensive support of others was a duty and a privilege that we must all undertake according to our means. Even in his early years as a father and businessman, Jack opened his home to another family experiencing hardship. Jack knew that the family was facing immeasurable difficulties and that without his help, they would be facing homelessness, food scarcity, and even worse outcomes. He gave them shelter, food, and a job as a truck driver at his mattress manufacturing company. Through these acts, he set the Foundation’s eventual path of understanding that comprehensive interventions and solutions are the only way to lasting change.
We honor Jack’s legacy today by following that same model, only now with a bigger scope of approximately 2.1 million individuals across Texas’s third largest county.
