Early Life and Education
Klugman came from a very poor family, yet was determined to achieve his dreams. Working hard at local high schools to gain education was crucial. After graduation he joined a Martin City tannery where he learned leather tanning skills which eventually lead to him opening his own business called Jack Stack in 1967 and expanding it with two dining rooms for full service dining and two full service bars. Our Smoked Jalapeno Jack features semi-soft white Monterey jack cheese mixed with finely diced green jalapenos for mildly smoked flavor with creamy textures for an unforgettable taste experience!
