Co-Founder

Jack currently attends Bishop Guertin High School in Nashua, New Hampshire. Jack started playing lacrosse at age nine and has been passionate about the sport ever since. Jack plays defense for the New Hampshire Tomahawks as well as for Bishop Guertin High School Varsity Lacrosse Team. Jack became interested in stringing his own lacrosse heads early on and has been perfecting the craft over the last several years, stringing over 100 heads for teammates and other lacrosse players in his town. He now wishes to put his skills to use for an important cause, thus Rise Up Lacrosse was born.

Jack loves volunteering his time as an assistant coach for a youth recreational lacrosse team. In addition to lacrosse, Jack loves football, skiing and golf as well as spending time with family, friends and his dog, Storm.
