EDUCATION: Jack Josey Terence was born in Houston Texas. He attended Montrose, SIdney Lanier, and San Jacinto High.  He expected to be named "Least Likely To Succeed" but classmates did not know who he was. This obscurity or notoriety has followed him through many campaigns. While attending San Jacinto, Jack worked summers for Tax Collector Carl Smith and earned $200 monthly. He graduated from the University of Houston and has an honorable discharge from The Army Reserve.  

PEACE CORPS VOLUNTEER: Jack was attending South Texas College of Law when he was selected as one of the first Peace Corps Volunteers from Houston.  You could tell  South Texas students as they had rusty stains on their shirts since many classes were held in the YMCA basement on Louisiana St. with plumbing pipes overhead.  Jack was a school teacher in The Philippines for two years. If you ever meet a Filipino who says "ain't" or "yawl." Jack might have been the teacher.

LAW LICENSE:  After returning from The Philippines Jack served as an assistant field director with the American Red Cross at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. He then resumed his studies and graduated from South Texas College of Law and passed the bar exam.  

FAMILY:  After receiving his license, Jack was back in The Philippines for several months and married a Filipina school teacher. They were blessed with three children: Benjamin Justice, Thomas Jeffrey, and Mindy Ann Liberty.  

WORK: Jack worked as an attorney, bought and remodeled old houses, and was the editor and janitor of a small weekly newspaper, The Houstonian, established by his father.
