After hearing about Hi, My Name Is Jack, from my husband, who’s has known Jack as a friend for nearly 30 years, his story intrigue me and made me ask, “How could one man have so many twists and turns in a lifetime? Is his story real?”
Jack opens his life—his heartbreaks, his Mulligans, and his faith—to the world in a way that is impossible not to keep turning the page. His remarkable story of overcoming life’s obstacles touches the hearts of all of us who can relate to his life’s twists and turns, but unwilling to risk sharing with others, unlike Jack. Hi, My Name Is Jack will challenge and encourage you to take the risk. A must read.
My wife and I have known Jack Watts for nearly fifty years—at least we thought we knew him. After reading Hi, My Name Is Jack, we discovered so much that made the pieces of our friendship puzzle fit. Believe me, his story is real, and he hasn’t pulled any punches. Page after page we nodded in agreement as he told his story. Sometimes our eyes widened, other times our jaws dropped, and several times we laughed until we cried. Jack speaks of his journey in terms with which we can all identify. Life is growth and Jack demonstrates that, although growth is often painful, it is always purposeful.

When I read Hi, My Name Is Jack, I kept saying, "Now I understand what happened!" For instance, we rode from Atlanta to L.A. when we were newlyweds with Jack and Mona—not knowing that she had given up his baby and that she was pregnant with their second. We didn't even know for sure when they got married. Jack was very protective of Mona. Later, Jack was one of the main reasons we moved to the hippie community in California. After we were shunned, he was the only one willing to keep in contact with us, which has solidified our friendship for half a century.
