Jack S. Damico is a resident of Lafayette, Louisiana and is married with one child.  He has lived in three states (Louisiana, Oklahoma, and New Mexico) and has worked as a university professor at Louisiana State University and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette (formerly the University of Southwestern Louisiana) since 1984.  His son's name is Tommy and his wife, Holly -- a native of Jerome, Idaho -- and is a speech-language pathologist.

Jack, a native of Alexandria, Louisiana has five siblings (Anthony, Mary, Patsy, Tommy, and Mike).  He is an identical twin and his twin (Tommy) is an attorney-at-law practicing in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Jack's hobbies include reading, exercise, traveling, socializing with friends, and spending time with his wife and son.  He enjoys watching movies and some sporting events.  Although Jack is a die-hard native son of Louisiana who enjoys living and working in the Acadian region of the state, he has spent portions of his Summers teaching in the Southwestern United States (Flagstaff, Arizona and/or Albuquerque, New Mexico).  He has especially enjoyed watching his son grow up and learn to be an effective meaning-maker through his social interactions, his educational opportunities, and his love of reading, mathematics, sports, and discovery.
Holly, Jack's wife, was born in Soda Springs, Idaho and has lived in Jerome and Pocatello, Idaho and Baton Rouge and Lafayette, Louisiana.  She received her Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Speech-Language Pathology from Idaho State University and has received certification in preschool Montessori education.  While she has worked in several hospital locations, Holly is currently the Director of the Speech and Language Clinic for the Department of Communicative Disorders at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
