Who is Jack Maxwell?

Jack Maxwell is an American actor and reality TV star, who achieved stardom as the host of the Travel Channel show “Booze Traveler” (2014-2018). Some of his notable roles as an actor include Lenny Lacks in the film “Cattle Call” (2006), and as Vic in “Born to Ride” (2011), among numerous other accomplishments.

Jack Maxwell Age, Childhood, and Education

Jack Maxwell was born on the 25th December 1963, in Boston, Massachusetts USA; his parents’ names and that of his sister with whom he shared his childhood’s ups and downs are unknown.

He attended an unspecified high school in Boston, and after matriculation started working as a shoe shiner in pubs and gin mills in South Boston. However, he wanted more out of life and so gave it a go as an actor.

Career Beginnings

Jack started with minor roles, making his debut in 1995 in the TV series “The Watcher”. The following year, he was SWAT Commander in the film “For Which He Stands”, and before the decade ended, he appeared in several more films, but mostly minor roles in B-productios, such as the action thriller “Shoot It” (1997), and “Sonic Impact” (1999).

He also had a recurring role in the TV series “Sunset Beach” (1998). The new millennium brought positive changes to Jack’s career; he starred in the comedy film “Dean Quixote” (2000), and also had a notable role in the sci-fi action-adventure film “The Pharaoh Project” (2001). One of his most prominent roles was as Mr. Godfrey in the TV drama series “Beyond the Break” (2006-2009).

Since 2010, he has made several other notable appearances, such as Vic in the film “Born to Ride” (2011), while in 2015, he featured in the drama film “Window of Opportunity”, starring next to Oliver Muirhead and Phil Proctor.

Television Host

In addition to his work as an actor, Jack is also a television host, a career which got him higher in the television world than his acting aspirations.

He started in 2000 as the host of the “DirectTV Movie Showcase”, which secured his next big deal, as the same year he became the host of “National Enquirer TV”. He was the host for 28 episodes of the highly popular show, but after this, he focused more on his rising career as an actor. Nevertheless, in 2014 he returned to television, and was chosen as the host of the new Travel Channel series “Booze Traveler”.

The premise of the show involves Jack traveling around the world, enjoying time with the locals and their alcohol-based customs. He hosted all 60 episodes of the show, which launched him to stardom as it became quite popular. He visited countries such as Turkey, Japan, Iceland, Mongolia, Greece, Croatia, Colombia, and many others. Loved by everyone wherever he set his foot, Jack became a world star thanks to the particular show.

Jack Maxwell Net Worth, Height, Weight, Appearance

Jack has made a name for himself in different aspects of a career in show business, and his success has added a considerable amount to his wealth. Sources have estimated that Jack’s net worth is as high as $5 million, as of early 2020. Jack Maxwell stands at 5ft 10ins (1.78m) tall, however, his weight and his vital statistics are unknown, though he has an athletic figure. Jack has green eyes and short blonde hair.

Jack Maxwell Personal Life, Marriage, Wife, Children

Jack is a married man, to Susan Shaughnessy for more than 30 years, and they have two children together. Despite Jack’s fame and fortune, the couple has remained out of the media buzz and hasn’t sparked any controversy in their three-decade long marriage. Unfortunately, the couple hasn’t revealed the names of their children and their ages.

Health Problems

Back in 2016 Jack was diagnosed with blood cancer, but didn’t share the bad news with his fans until December of 2017, when he was already in Arizona for the needed treatment. His non-Hodgkins Lymphoma needed chemotherapy and other medications, but luckily, the diagnosis came at the right time, and he is now recovering and hasn’t given up on his career. Jack is looking forward to new projects, and maybe the fifth season of the “Booze Traveler”.
