Jack was born on May 29, 1944, in Strongsville, Ohio to Arthur and Meredith Tomson. Jack lived and went to school in in Strongsville until his freshman year in high school where he moved to Tavares and graduated Tavares High. After graduating Jack got his first job as a receiver at John Wannamaker's. In 1963, he served his Country proudly in the United States Air Force in Vietnam and received the rank of Airman (A2-E). After receiving an Honorable Discharge from the Air Force, Jack continued to serve his community by joining the Tavares Police Department. After retiring there, he went on to join the Eustis Police Department and retired from them as well. He then joined the Lake County Sheriff's Department, obtaining the rank of Sergeant and then finally retiring permanently from police work. Jack also coached in little league and in youth football.
