Jack was a graduate and lifelong supporter of Christchurch School in Middlesex County and Randolph-Macon College, in Ashland. A lifelong boater, he was able to work around the water he loved as the owner of the Dozier Yachting Center, marinas in Deltaville and Urbanna, and The Waterway Guide publications.
He was a member of the Stuart Corinthian Yacht Club, Indian Creek Yacht and Country Club, and Virginia Yacht Club, the latter of which elected him as their youngest Commodore in club history.
