Jack was born April 19, 2005, in Lynchburg, a son of Gregory S. Cunningham and Heather M. Cunningham. Jack attended Rustburg High School and was dually enrolled at CVCC. You could always find him on a soccer field whether at Central Virginia United Soccer or Rustburg High School. He was a member of Calvary United Methodist Church.
