Jack was born February 23, 1924 in Bosque County to Chasteen Carmichael and Jeanette Deen Carmichael.

Jack met the love of his life, Jean Rhinehart, at Texas Technological College after the war. They married January 24, 1947. Married 62 years, they were blessed with four children. Jack graduated from Texas Tech with a degree in Dairy Manufacturing and worked for the Borden Company in Midland. In 1954, he relocated to Arkansas where he accepted a job working in dairy production sales and service throughout the southeastern United States. Much of his success in this field was due to his ability to treat customers as family. He and his family moved to Hurst in 1960 and he continued the same business pursuits until his retirement in 1989. Jack was very active in church life. He and Jean were origiinal members of St. Stephens Episcopal, where he served as the first Senior Warden, became a lay reader and was active in Cursillo. Jack was avid outdoorsman. He taught his children a love and respect for nature and how to safely hunt and fish. In 1970 he bought acreage in Jack County, where he and Jean spent many happy hours in their retirement years building fences, fishing, hunting and having fun with the grandkids on the ATV.
