Jack was a carpenter and employed at Component Engineering before being employed at Polaris in the snowmobile and personal watercraft groups for 28+ yrs where he has many patents.  Jack also farmed at the family farm in Malung with his dad Joel.  He had Services on Track a Posi-Track trade service.  There were many 8 hour car drives to and from Bovey, MN and wiener roasts at the farm with the kids and grandkids.  Jack liked to go on drives to visit family and friends and end up at the hunting camp.
