Golden, Colorado


B.A. Hillsdale College, Politics, 2022.

“I wish to be part of teaching successive generations to think about what justice is, how the framers believed it ought to shape American society, and how the United States has succeeded and failed in living up to that standard through the present day.”


Jack was born and raised in Golden, CO, where he was given the opportunity to be a member of the first 9th grade cohort at a brand-new Barney Charter School. Upon graduation, he pursued his bachelor’s degree at Hillsdale College where he majored in Politics and minored in Math. During his undergraduate summers, he interned first as a researcher for the Fiscal Policy Center at the Independence Institute in Denver, and later as a researcher for the “What Will They Learn?®” project at the American Council of Trustees and Alumni in D.C. He is glad to continue in the Hillsdale graduate school in hopes of one day teaching high school civics and becoming a principal.
