Jack first joined the board as a trustee in 2003 for a three-year term. Prompted by Dr. Keith Anderson, he returned in 2016, compelled by the hope that his skills could be an asset to The Seattle School.
After a successful entrepreneurial career, Jack earned his MA in Counseling and spent 10 years as a therapist with Jack Easterling Counseling Services before retiring in 2017. A family trauma experience first led him to therapy, and the ensuing spiritual growth was the catalyst for Jack’s career change at the age of 59. He is passionate about the role of Scripture in shaping the human condition and culture, and he believes that counseling is an effective way to apply the gospel in supporting individuals and families after abuse.
Jack and his wife, Lois, split their time between Missouri and Colorado, where he enjoys cycling, hiking, fishing, photography, and reading. He and Lois are also avid travelers.
