FASHION MUST: A sugar daddy
Jack, 38 and originally from Seattle, Washington, is a swimmer, model and fashion designer. He graduated from the University of California at Berkeley with a double degree in Fine Arts and Sociology. In 1991, Jack moved to New York to attend Parsons School of Design where he studied fashion design. Fresh out of Parsons, Jack opened a menswear store in New York City's West Village called "Jack." There, he showcased new designers alongside upscale brands such as Gaultier Junior, Diesel and John Richmond. In 1997, he went to work for Tommy Hilfiger and then designed for the Slates brand, which is under the Levis umbrella. For the past four years Jack has been the Design Director at Weatherproof Active Wear.
Beyond his professional achievements, Jack has also received national recognition as a competitive swimmer. He has three All-American titles to his name and set a national record in the summer of 2006 in the breaststroke leg of the 4 x 50 meter medley relay. As a fitness and fashion model through the 1990's, Jack appeared in such magazines as "Paper," "DNR," "Men's Fitness," "Men's Journal," "Genre," "Blue" and several others. Jack has also always been very open about his positive HIV status. Since his diagnosis in 1990, he has tried to combat the stigma of HIV by living honestly and being a role model through professional and athletic achievements.
Currently Jack is developing his own line of men's dress shirts and dress pants, and hopes to expand into all aspects of men's sportswear. He is also working on a memoir about his life experiences.

Great! I haven't been paying attention, and I have to say the only great thing about Top Chef this past Wednesday was the announcement of when the season of Runway starts.

He's adorable, btw, and being HIV+ should add a nice story to the show. Am I being a gutter dweller to hope he goes shirtless? :)
