As a 3rd generation resident of Georgetown, Alabama, Jack Williams has spent his entire life in the farming and nursery business and working to support his community. Jack was born and raised on a working farm, which instilled within him a strong work ethic and an appreciation for agriculture and land conservation. These values are still very important to him today.
In 1986, Jack saw an opportunity to go in to business for himself and, after much prayer, he opened his first nursery, Twin Oaks Nursery, Inc, located in Wilmer, Al. The Mobile area has more nurseries than any other region in the United States, but Twin Oaks built a strong reputation for service and quality. It was because of this type of work ethic that Twin Oaks developed an excellent reputation and helped Jack grow the nursery into a very successful business. In 2004, Jack and his son John expanded their local footprint when they purchased Tom Dodd Nurseries, Inc, located in Semmes. Jack also owns and operates a cattle operation and farm named JBarW. The two nurseries coupled with Jack’s cattle operation contribute significantly to Senate 34’s economy and offers quality employment options for community residents.
Jack’s commitment to his community extends much farther than his business endeavors. Jack has been an active partner with 4H since he was child. He enjoys teaching about agriculture and showing youth the importance of properly cultivating the area’s land and livestock. Jack supports not only 4H, but is known around the district for his grilling expertise in preparing hundreds of Boston Butts that support local fundraising efforts.
Jack and his wife Bobbie met and were married 39 years ago at Wilmer Baptist Church, which they now attend. They are proud parents to two children John Jr., who lives in Georgetown and Jennifer, who passed away in 2008. They have 4 grandchildren: Whitney, John III, Mica and Madison. On the rare occasion that Jack and Bobbie are not working, they enjoy traveling with friends, horseback riding, hunting and fishing. They firmly believe that all things are possible through Jesus Christ.
