Jack is the resident MasterJack mascot and is most known for his modelling work in the MasterJack DIY content marketing series. He brings a sense of enlightenment to the team and is a valued paper weight.
Tracing his history through the Jackfruit family tree, his ancestors have played significant roles in Indian agriculture for centuries. The ornate wooden plank called avani palaka, made of the wood of the Jackfruit tree, is used as the priest’s seat during Hindu ceremonies in Kerala. In Vietnam, Jackfruit wood is prized for the making of Buddhist statues in temples.
Without knowing his history, you would never guess that Jack is of Asian descent, but there are still family members in Asia such as Jackie Chan, who has also gained fame from manic martial arts cinema industry.
There are of course skeletons in Jack’s closet which he is open and honest about. He is a direct descendant of Jack the Ripper, but their families have parted ways and not been on speaking terms for quite some time. Then there’s the black sheep of the family, Jack Black, who has also come to find fame and fortune in the creative arts as a musician, singer, and actor. Another family member is Jack who came to notoriety whilst fetching a pail of water – he fell and broke his crown and ended up in a nursery rhyme.
In Jack’s spare time he does voice overs – you might recognise his voice as Jack Skellington in ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ – and he creates footwork choreography – his moves can clearly be seen, acted out by Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’.
Even though he charges an arm and a leg for his modelling, we think it’s justifiable as he is part Jedi. Our Jack is related to none other than Mannequin Skywalker. But that’s what we like about Jack. He is strong without being aggressive. He is diverse without bragging to the world about it. He is good looking but humble. He learns from history, and he keeps calm, bringing a sense of stillness to the office
