Jack married Fanny and the couple had three children, two were born in London, England and the youngest was born in Montreal. The family moved to Victoria as Jack’s affiliation with the Canadian Pacific Railway lead to an offer to be the proprietor of the Empress Hotel’s new barber shop.

At Jack’s death, the Empress Hotel flew their flag at half-mast in his honor to support the grieving of their staff.
