His maternal grandfather was Louis Krieger, known as Pops, a magician known for his mastery of the cups and balls.

Jack grew up surrounded by sideshow personalities like Bud Abbott and wealthy figures like the Rolls Royce chairman John McManus.

Jack started out as as a comedy magician in nightclubs and U.S.O. tours. He featured a money act billed as "Mr. Billionaire" which included the production of bills, a Miser's Dream, and the vanish of a small safe where the money was placed.

In the 1950's Jack performed in Las Vegas.

Jack took over the Flosso-Hornmann Magic shop in 1976, after his father passed away, and ran it until he sold it to Ted Bogusta in 2000.[1][2]
