Jack was born on December 26, 1942, at his home in Matoy, Oklahoma. He was the youngest of six children of James Walter and Mae (Marshall) Pettett. He dedicated his life to serving as an Obstetrician and Gynecologist and delivered more than six thousand children over the course of his career, including one of his children and two of his grandchildren. He treasured the gifts God gave him to be an instrument of help and healing to people. He served as Captain and Flight Surgeon in the United States Army. He always loved and supported his family faithfully. He enjoyed taking them on trips where they made some of their best memories. He was a loyal fan to his medical school alma mater, Oklahoma University and regularly attended their sporting events over the years. He was an excellent golfer, master fisherman, and hunter. He passed these skills onto his children and grandchildren. In his latter years, he devotedly cared for his loving wife as they took joy spending time outside on their beautiful property in Stonewall.
