Following his graduation from Auburn University, he received a Navy commission and served onboard USS Wasp sailing around the globe before eventually joining Esso Standard Oil of Louisiana’s Baton Rouge office as a sales executive.
In 1978, Jack answered an ad for a zoo director position in Columbus, Ohio and worked hard to increase attendance and improve animal habitats. Jack also taught full time at Gryphon Stringed Instruments where he offered banjo, mandolin and fiddle lessons; many of his students are part of the Bay and Peninsula jam scene today.
Jack Moore spent three decades working in corporate America. Tired of spending all his time sitting behind desks and traveling on airplanes, in 2017 he made a drastic change and purchased Grassperson Lawn Care & Landscape of Lewisville Texas.
At GEICO, White Mountains and other companies he was well known for his expertise in both insurance and business in general. He advocated strongly for maintaining adequate loss reserves as well as rewarding management teams that produced outstanding results.
Jack was active in community affairs and charitable work during his time with the company, championing arts events while supporting several local events. Alongside Maxine, they were both active members of Noble County community; visiting parks together as well as playing golf together.

Jack is also an established writer. He serves as editor and publisher for ONTHEBUS, an international literary journal which has received multiple grants, as well as publishing 24 collections of poetry that bridge pop culture and philosophy.
He enjoys hiking and kayaking in his free time, as well as spending time with his three children and five grandchildren.

He is one half of Tenacious D, alongside brother Kyle Grass, and has won multiple awards for their music. Additionally, they’ve appeared in multiple television shows and films.
He owns numerous vehicles and loves expensive watches and sneakers. He practices wise spending, becoming an early and major philanthropist by raising millions for Louisville-area nonprofits and HBCUs while investing in real estate properties himself.
