Jack Russell wrote Fox World after suffering sudden cardiac arrest and undergoing several heart procedures to save his life. To heal, he sought the calm refuge of a nearby forest in which to walk and relax, and there, he reunited with an aging red fox that he saved as a pup. Fox World is based on true events and was composed while he and his co-narrator, Mr. Fox, walked daily for a year.
Previously, Jack was a sales executive and traveled North America and Europe for three decades to assist Fortune 1000 companies with building distribution channels, developing new products, and launching start-ups. He lives in Lake Frederick, Virginia with his wife, Susan, and their Jack Russell terrier, Milo. Along with lobbying for Mr. Fox’s forest to be declared a nature preserve, Jack and Susan enjoy giving freedom rides to shelter dogs. He is a beginner at photography, an ever-learning birdwatcher, a football fan when Green Bay and University of Tennessee are on television, and an enthusiastic golfer of diminishing skills.
Young-Williams Animal Center began as the Knoxville/Knox County Animal Welfare Center that opened in January 2001. At Young-Williams Animal Center, their mission is to lead the community to end pet homelessness, promote animal welfare and enhance the human-animal bond.
