Days of Our Lives Character Descriptions

Jack Harcourt Deveraux
Played by Matthew Ashford
Written by
Jacques

Jack was not always the good guy he is now. When Jack first came to town he had Hodgkin's disease. Jack blackmailed his adoptive father and then got his hands on half of the ownership of The Spectator.

Jack's turning point started when he met Jennifer. After overcoming some obstacles (believe me, Jack is not a guy who easily gives up), Jack and Jen married and had a daughter named Abby. Their happiness did not last long as Jack felt so much guilt from believing that he was the cause of his daughterís aplastic anemia. Jack made a difficult decision. (I think this was the worst one he ever had to make.) He left Jen and Abby.

Later Jack returned to find Jen in the arms of another man. Jack went to a place called "The Meadows" to try to change his ways and become the man Jennifer would respect and love again. However, he made the mistake of sleeping with Jen's mom, though they did not know each otherís true identity. 

We all know Jack: he won't give up until he gets what he wants, and he would do anything for his true love. He devoted himself to proving that Peter was not the man he said he was, and Jennifer left Peter after Jack exposed him. After everything the couple had been through, they decided to go to Africa with Abby. There, Jennifer didn't exactly find the devoted husband and father she was hoping for as Jack became obsessed with the idea of making his money back and began to get himself involved in get-rich-quick schemes, which often caused him to disappear for weeks. Eventually, deciding nothing had changed, Jennifer packed up her stuff and secretly left with Abby, first for Ireland and then back to Salem.

Jack found Jennifer in Paris on Princess Greta's coronation and persuaded her to return to Salem with him. When he made friends with Greta, he saw that Jennifer was a bit jealous of his friendship with Greta. When Jack realized that Gretaís feelings were more than just friendship, he lied and said he was gay. By now, we all know that Jack would go to any lengths to get Jennifer back, and he applied for a job to impress her. However, to get the job, he had to go to Las Vegas for the interview. Jack was truly hurt when, on Jennifer's birthday, he proposed to her and she declined. Greta posed as Jack's girlfriend in Las Vegas. Things did not work out for Jack because in the end Jennifer got the job he wanted. Jennifer kicked Jack out of the house.

Jack started a relationship with Billie Reed, which made Jennifer jealous. This relationship did not last long. Jack was the only one who stood beside Billie when it came to light that she was involved in Hope's kidnapping. Jack felt betrayed when he found out that he was not included in the plot to save Hope. Jack moved into the DiMera house to get some dirt on Colin, a mysterious Irishman dating Jennifer, but Tony kicked him out of the house. When Colin, who was Shawn Brady's nephew, was murdered, Jack and Jennifer suspected each other. He turned himself in to protect her and finally proposed to her on Valentine's Day, 2003.

Finally, Jack and Jennifer found their way back together and re-married in May 2003, but in soaps we get to learn that happiness does not last long, and Jack became the Salem Stalker's second victim in October, when Jennifer was pregnant with his second child.
