Jack Sheehan’s journey to the desert of Las Vegas begins in the lush greenery of Spokane, Washington where he was born and raised. Having loved golf at a young age, Jack’s good fortune took him to the University of Oregon on a golf scholarship. After graduating with his degree in journalism, he then went on to compete on the national amateur golf circuit while also working as a writer. While in competition, he also obtained a master’s degree in English and in 1975 moved to Las Vegas on a whim.
From there, Jack has enjoyed a successful career as an writer, journalist, and keynote speaker.
