Jack Walker also enjoys drawing, writing, and learning about history, as well as reading reference books, survival guides, the atlas and dictionaries. He also spends a lot of time volunteering with his local JDRF Chapter. Jack Walker and his family are incredibly involved with JDRF, because not only was he diagnosed with T1D at age two, but his father and sister also have T1D.
