Jack was mustered into service in the Union Army at Camp Curtin, Pennsylvania on November 1, 1862. He served as a private in the Pennsylvania Infantry, 178th Regiment, Company D, until he was mustered out on July 27, 1863.

The 178th Regiment served primarily in Washington, DC, and in Virginia. During the first week in July, 1863, it was sent on a reconnaissance mission to Bottom's Bridge, New Kent County, Virginia. It engaged in a brisk skirmish with some Rebel troops at the Chickahominy River on July 2, 1863. This diversion delayed Rebel troops in Richmond, Virginia, from reinforcing their troops in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Jack was born in White Hall, Derry Township, Columbia County (now Montour County), Pennsylvania, to Elizabeth Kline and Edward Crawford. He was a farmer and also worked as a blacksmith. He married Hannah Rustay on Sept. 1, 1867 at Town Hill, Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. Justice of the Peace G. C. McWaine performed the marriage. The couple had thirteen children: Millie, twins Dora and Cora, Ira, Della, George, May, Alice, Byron, Charles, Ethel, Lena, and another child who died as an infant.

Jack filed for a Civil War pension on July 5, 1882. The government rejected this initial claim, but approved his second claim on September 15, 1890.

Cause of death: atrophy of liver
