Jack was born on October 6, 1931, at home in Cherokee, Texas, to James William Dickison and Iva Means Dickison.  He was the sixth of seven children.  Jack attended his first 3 years of school at the Colony in San Saba county before transferring into San Saba where he completed high school in 1951.  He began working for TxDot and on December 9, 1951, married his beloved wife, Gladys Jane Felts.  They spent the next 63 years as a team, building a life, home, and family together.  First, they both moved to Huntsville, Texas, and began attending Sam Houston State University, where Jack earned his bachelor's degree in Agricultural Science in 1956 and a master's in Agricultural Science in 1958.

He started his teaching career in 1956 in Star, Texas, before moving to Lampasas, Texas in the fall of 1959 to teach seventh-grade science which he taught for the next 34 years before retiring.  Jack was a stockman, always having cows for calf production and at various times raising sheep and even a few hogs.

Above all, Jack was devoted to God first and his family second.
