Early Life and Education
Jack was raised in an Irish Catholic family and became their favorite son. His father worked at a gas company while his mother took care of their household duties; during his summers Jack worked on his grandfather’s vending machine route as an independent worker.
Through his parish catechetical work, Jack came to realize that adult faith formation was at the core of church renewal. To achieve this goal, he created a national empirical study designed to isolate and identify best practices in parish adult religious education programs.
Jack is an accomplished writer who takes great care when using grammar and punctuation correctly. Additionally, he excels at public speaking; having delivered speeches to military personnel, college students and other interested groups. In addition, Jack promotes physical activity among children and adults alike through supporting National Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day.

He flew 572 missions as an F-100 pilot in Southeast Asia (SEA), and especially enjoyed serving as a Misty forward air controller. Married for 58 years to Rita, they are survived by three children.
Hager became widely recognized in professional wrestling under his ring name of Jack Swagger during his WWE tenure until retiring from that company in 2017. Since then, he has ventured out into independent wrestling where he currently holds the Heavyweight Champion position with House of Hardcore.
Doub is a member of Mitchell Presbyterian Church and served in its volunteer fire department before collecting stamps as an avid hobby. Furthermore, he founded Baltimore Therapeutic Equipment Co. and served as past master for Mitchell Masonic Lodge No. 228 F&AM.
