Jack Cooper and his wife Kris with their kids

Jack Cooper was born and raised in Eagle, Mich., and attended Portland High School. Prior to graduating high school, Jack joined the Army National Guard and proudly served his state and country. After graduating high school, Jack attended Ferris State University in Big Rapids, Mich., where he earned a degree in automotive repair and collision. Shortly after college, Jack opened his own Auto Repair Shop and served his community for over 4 years as a business owner. In 2001, Jack married his wife, Kris, and accepted a full time position with the Michigan National Guard where he served as an aircraft mechanic with a drug interdiction team. Jack would spend many weeks traveling throughout the state of Michigan and, on occasion, parts of Indiana and Wisconsin. Accepting a position with the Arizona Army National Guard, Jack and his family moved to Marana, Ariz., where Jack worked as a quality control inspector on Army helicopters. In May of 2009, Jack and his family moved to Springfield, Mo., where he currently serves as Maintenance Supervisor for the Army Aviation Flight Activity. Jack lives in Willard, Mo., with his wife Kris and their two sons Brad and Drew. In 2011, Jack attended Liberty University seeking a B.S. in Religion and a minor in Christian Counseling; Jack currently holds credentials through the Assembly of God.

God brought Jack and his family to CTO through a friend at church, after attending many CTO Sportsman’s Nights and multiple outings, Jack knew God was calling him to minister with CTO. Serving under the leadership of the State Director Kirk Bouse, Jack began seeking the vision God had for him in CTO. Many months later God opened the door to the Springfield Chapter where he currently facilities CTO sportsman’s nights along with CTO outings year round.
