Jack was born on May 31, 1945 in Langdon, ND to Phyllis and James Maxwell. Raised in Concrete, ND, he received his GED, then served in the US Army from January 1963 to December 1968. He married Luana Raguse in 1968 in Nashua, MN and they had two sons, Jim and Troy.
After his military service, Jack attended barber school in Fargo, ND, supplementing his income by bartending too. Jack worked at Anaconda, General Mills, did construction with Bert Earl and John and Gary Wilson before starting his own landscaping business. He was also a plant operator for Elk River Concrete. In 1983, he purchased five acres of land north of Great Falls and built his home there.
Although work kept him very busy, he made time to serve as superintendent on the Homestead Acres Water Board. He enjoyed gardening, barbecuing, camping, riding motorcycles, and black powder shooting. His family has fond memories of him cutting firewood in the mountains. He was a huge Nascar fan, enjoyed working on vehicles, and got great pleasure watching his sons playing ball.
