"Food, shelter, and clothing are the staples of life. But for a child, learning music can change their future forever." ~ Jimmy Jack Whitaker
Dr. Chuck Olson, Pastor, invited Jimmy Jack Whitaker to perform for his guitar students at Calvary Lutheran Church in Rockford Illinois. Dr. Olson gives them free lessons. Notice their age ranges from 7 to 80 and they come from different ethnic backgrounds. It was cool seeing some of the older ones helping the younger ones.
The Jimmy Jack Foundation will
definitely be helping some of his students

Sydney is a blessing everywhere she goes.
"I was 6 years old when I watched my father drive out of my life. My mother worked hard as a single parent to keep me and my brother and sister together for the next 8 years. We did not have much, but when I started the fourth grade, I wanted to learn to play the violin.
My mother always made sure I had both an instrument to play and private lessons. The sacrifices my mother made built my musical foundation for the rest of my life.
For many years, I had no idea why I would give my own musical equipment to children who had no way of purchasing instruments without help. I understand now, that I was simply trying to give back to less fortunate children.
I have surrounded himself with like-minded musicians and businessmen, and I am looking for people who want to partner with the 'Jimmy Jack Foundation' in helping a child reach his or her musical dreams."
