Born and raised in Shelby, Montana, Jack attended the University of Montana for seven years majoring in geology and zoology. Although never completing a formal degree, in 1986 the University of Montana awarded him an honorary doctorate of Science and the MacArthur Foundation awarded him a “Genius Grant.” Jack and his teams discovered the first evidence of parental care in dinosaurs, extensive nesting grounds, evidence of dinosaur herds, and the world’s first dinosaur embryos. Jack has named several new species of dinosaurs including Maiasaura, the “good mother reptile.” Two dinosaur species have been named after him. Jack has published more than 170 professional papers, 9 popular books, and more than 100 popular articles. His book Digging Dinosaurs was described by New Scientist Magazine as one of the 200 most important science books of the 20th Century. Jack directs the largest dinosaur field research program in the world. He was technical advisor for Steven Spielberg on all of the Jurassic Park movies, and on the FOX television show Terra Nova. He has been featured on CBS’s 60 Minutes, National Geographic, and The Discovery Channel. Jack is Curator of Paleontology at the Museum of the Rockies, and Regent’s Professor of Paleontology at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. He is also a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Paleobiology at the Smithsonian Institution, and an Honorary Research Fellow with the Natural History Museum in London. Jack lectures on dinosaurs, evolution and dyslexia. Jack has no interests other than dinosaurs, his wife Vanessa, and their dog, “Dawg.”
