Jack is a Pittsburgh police detective who also served in the Gulf War and is a 22-year-old Army veteran who was surprised himself. He loved his life and was a committed bachelor who never had any plans on having a wife or kids. 

When he had some spare time, he would volunteer at the Steel City Boxing. A local gym run by a non-profit organization that helps underprivileged children with difficult backgrounds.

Jack Mook Felt A Connection With The Boys

Among his students were siblings Joshua, 15 and Jessee, 11, who were too eager to train. Jack always found them pale. He said Josh had bags under his eyes. 

Jack felt an instant connection with the boys but little did he know it was going to be a long connection.

It so happened that one day the boys stopped attending his classes. Naturally the concerned teacher goes hunting for them.

The boys grew up in extreme poverty and were rejected by their parents. This led them to foster care but unfortunately they faced neglect and abuse. 

Joshua recalls their life was a nightmare. No clothes, no bed, no parents. 

After knowing how the brothers have to sleep on the floor in unhygienic conditions.

Jack knew that they were special and they deserved help. 

A Life Changing Decision For The Concerned Teacher 

Jack knew he had to do something for the kids. Thanks to his position he was able to get a few favors in place and give the boys a home, his own home. 

Joshua said it was their greatest moment when Jack said they are coming home with him. 

The once committed bachelor became a foster dad to two kids. Over time their mutual bond grew stronger.
