With three and a half years under his belt at McCormack, Jack’s dedication and loyalty have been evident since day one. Known for his friendly nature, he’s the go-to guy, both at work and in his personal life.
Outside of the office, he’s taken on the role of president at Footscray United Rangers, a local soccer team that is rapidly growing, much of the growth fuelled by his passion for the club… which he will humbly deny. Reflecting on the club’s journey, Jack speaks of growth and inclusivity. “When I took over as President last year, we had three Senior Men’s teams and a junior All-abilities team, playing in the VicSoccer community league. Now, we’ve joined Football Victoria, aiming to elevate our presence in the Melbourne Metropolitan leagues.”
Jack’s vision extends beyond the pitch. Under his leadership, the club has launched initiatives like the Mini-Tillies program, inspiring young girls to embrace soccer and dream of representing the Matildas. Expanding their youth teams and championing inclusivity with their All Abilities Team, the club is not only about winning games but also about making a meaningful impact in the community.
One such initiative close to Jack’s heart is the Footscray United Rangers Refugee Bursary Program, addressing the financial barriers faced by asylum seekers in joining the soccer community. “We’ve partnered with the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Footscray to ensure everyone has a chance to play. This year, we’re setting aside funds to cover all football-related fees, ensuring cost is never a barrier.”
As the club gears up for another season, McCormack is proud to support Footscray Rangers United, ensuring they have the resources they need to succeed. From new equipment to continued community outreach, Jack’s dual roles exemplify his commitment to excellence both on and off the field.
