Jack is one of Hi5’s reputation managers. He started as an intern with us back in the summer of 2016, and after a few short weeks of working here, we realized that Jack is somebody that we would be extremely lucky to have on our team. He has been with us ever since, and we are so grateful to have him.
Jack’s day consists of creating and enhancing online listings, posting on social media, monitoring and responding to reviews, sending out email campaigns, and writing copy.
Basically, whenever you search for a new dentist online, it is Jack’s job to make sure that the content that gets pulled up in the search results for our clients include the correct business name, hours of operation, address, photos, videos, and descriptions. He makes sure that the story being told online about each of our clients is as accurate and complete as possible.
Jack is also no stranger to being in front of the camera. Check out this awesome video where he explains the power of calls to action.
One area that Jack really excels at is writing. When Hi5 is creating a new website, or coming up with content to post on social media, we can always count on Jack to be our wordsmith. He has always loved to write and was inspired by teachers growing up that instilled that passion inside of him. Jack went on to Louisiana State University, where he studied Journalism. He did some reporting for the school paper and freelanced for a few other publications. He wrote about sports, entertainment, and news stories. “Doing all of that through college helped me hone my skills, and made me realize how much I love to write.”
One thing that Jack is really great at is his empathy. What do we mean by that? He has a passion to always do great work for his clients. He sees their needs and their problems and takes them on to himself, and solves those problems. He will always see a project through to the finish line.
The work that this LSU graduate has done for Hi5 so far has been nothing short of amazing, and we are so excited for what the future holds for Jack at Hi5.
Here’s what the Hi5 team thinks about Jack:
Hi5’s Five Burning Questions
Hi5: Are you an indoor or outdoor person?
Jack: I really love being outdoors. That’s probably my favorite thing. I went to the beach once when I was a kid for vacation, and never went again until college. So for all of my family vacations growing up, it was hiking, camping, and hanging out in the mountains out west. I’d love to be able to get out to Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, twice a year if it was possible. One of my favorite quotes is from John Muir which says “The mountains are calling and I must go.” That’s kinda the way I feel a lot of times.
Hi5: If you could only keep five possessions, what would they be?
Jack: My car for one. We’ve been through a lot. It’s a 2000 Toyota Camry with 215,000 miles on it. It was my first car, so we’ve taken a lot of road trips, a few accidents, but it has always been reliable and has gotten me from point A to B. Second would be my study bible, it’s a big thing for me and it’s what I base my life around. Third, would be my laptop. I really enjoy writing, and I love to type because my penmanship is horrible. I also love to read articles. Fourth, would be my desk. It’s really more like a table. I’ve had it for a long time. Used it through college. It’s where I did my studying and writing. Lastly, would be my bed. I feel like everybody wants and needs a good bed. I have put a lot of hours into, and it has always been there for me.
Hi5: What is your favorite book and why?
Jack: If I could cheat a little, I would probably say the Harry Potter books. As a kid, it was so easy to get swept up in the magical world. Looking back on it now I’m still really fond of these books because as a writer looking at how J.K. Rowling was able to create an entire world with made up terms, and ridiculous names, and then be able to sustain it over an entire series. To me, that’s very impressive.
Hi5: What was your most embarrassing moment?
Jack: The thing that comes to mind is in junior high, I was on the basketball team. There was one game where I was checking in. I was the sixth man on the team. The first player to get off the bench. I was a pretty good shooter, and we needed a score. So I get called into the game. I’m super pumped thinking I’m going to drain a couple threes and cut their lead. The ball goes out of bounds and now I start to jog onto the court and get in the game. I take about four steps onto the court, roll my ankle, and immediately turn around to go to the bench where I sat and iced my ankle for the rest of the game.
Hi5: What is a skill that you’d like to learn, and why?
Jack: If there was one thing that I regret and wish I was good at, it would have to be music. I really wish that I could play an instrument like the violin, guitar, piano, cello, really anything. I’m not musically gifted, so I don’t know if I would amount to anything like John Mayer, but I wish I had taken lessons, so I could sit around a campfire and play some tunes.
