At HRC, he sourced and secured major gifts from HRC’s member community across the country via candidate fundraising events. By designing and facilitating candidate fundraising training seminars for the national HRC member community, Jack raised over $1.7 million in 7 months for HRC-endorsed candidates during the 2018 cycle.
Prior to joining HRC, Jack was the Deputy Director for South Region & Native Tribe fundraising at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (“DSCC”), where he raised over $2 million.

Additionally, Jack designed and implemented a young professional fundraising program for Chicago donors that was later implemented in major cities across the country.
Jack began his fundraising career as Finance Director at the Lenda Sherrell for U.S. Congress campaign. A small, yet ambitious, campaign that attempted to flip Tennessee’s fourth congressional district blue and oust incumbent U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais. By rapidly developing a fundraising skill set through mentorship and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Finance Training program, Jack was able to raise over $900,000 in primary and general election campaign contributions.
