Every individual in this District is unique and important to me.
My life as a Family Practice physician and a compassionate military provider, as well as numerous additional volunteer actions, has empowered me to understand the extensive needs of our community, with respectful ways to negotiate and agree on carefully considered legislative actions.
For this reason, you are encouraged to support a new legislative candidate who will be able to thoughtfully interact with all in a reasonable way.
David Jack is a member of the United Utah Party, an alliance that was formed to consider all aspects of politics in a kind and helpful way. We stress temperance, fairness, and balance.
David’s core intent has always been to serve others in an unbiased way, providing compassionate medical care to military and native citizens during deployments, to those in the community, and in countless other circumstances. This is what makes his life meaningful.
David Jack, M.D., FAAFP did his undergraduate training at the University of Utah and received his medical degree from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences School of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland. His training was in the U.S. Army at Ft. Lewis, Tacoma, Washington. He served 12 years on active duty with the Army and served another 28 years in the Utah Army National Guard. His original military duty was as a Combat Medic and an Operating Room Technician, which helped him pay for his undergraduate degree. During his active practice in Utah, he was deployed four times to the Middle East and served as the State of Utah Army Surgeon General.
In addition to his 40 years of military service, he has been a community family practitioner for 40 years as well. Throughout this time, he has been honored to have received many awards such as the Outstanding Teacher of the Year from the University of Utah Department of Family and Community Medicine, the Sword of Hope Award for volunteer service with the American Cancer Society, multiple Army Commendation Medals and Meritorious Service Medals, and more. Most military medals were for charitable purposes and actions. His life has been full of other volunteer activities, such as being the Chair of the Lone Peak Hospital Board, serving on Physicians Advisory Committee meetings, and serving on the Utah Medical Association Environmental and Public Health Committee.
I am focused on the good role of government - the process by which our laws are made and executed. Proper government requires transparency, fairness, and a robust but civil debate. Also, public policy should reflect the will of the people. Public servants must act with integrity and according to their oaths of office.
I prefer that people come to the political process with goodwill and good faith. Being an Uniter (as a member of the United Utah Party) means doing the listening and the challenging work required to find common ground. I can persuade when possible, will always extend a hand of friendship when I cannot, and respect the voice of the people.
It is my belief that solutions can be found to the pressing problems of society using a pragmatic approach, finding common ground with others, and encouraging widespread public involvement in the resolution of public policy issues. I believe in the worth of all individuals in a society and assert that engagement by all is the best means for operating a democratic republic.
