Jack was born July 23, 1971 in Indianapolis, IN to Jack Reule Sutherland Jr and Jean (Heilwagen) Sutherland. Jack attended Scecina Memorial High School (’89) and after high school began his career in tool rental at the Old Tool Shed, and continued later at United Rentals, and then K&R Tool Shed.
Jack married the love of his life, Allison (Schnell) Sutherland May 20, 2006. They built their life at a home in the Little Flower neighborhood, lived in Fishers and ultimately settled closer to family in Franklin Township.
Jack obtained an Associate’s Degree in Health Information Technology at Ivy Tech and started a new career path in 2015 at Indiana Health Information Technology as a Client Business Analyst. Jack truly enjoyed his work, but his coworkers even more.
Jack enjoyed spending his time with Allison and traveling in their camper, playing semi-competitive rounds of putt-putt, and working on projects around the house. John Prine music was also an important influence in Jack’s life. He and Allison attended many of his concerts together and his music frequently filled their home. He also loved his dog Grace, who is heart-broken and lost without her Jack.
