HUSBAND & FATHER
Jack and his wife are raising their two school-aged daughters in Oconomowoc where he is active in his community and serves in various volunteer roles, including the Waukesha County Republican Party, the American Legion, and the Oconomowoc VFW.
Jack's legal career has been devoted to the rule of law. Whether as a litigator or in his various appointed roles in state government, he believes that judges should never substitute their discretion for the plain text of the law.
Dear Neighbor -
“A will to serve,” it’s a powerful statement. There are those that wait to seek the approval of others to serve, and there are those that heed the call choosing not to wait.
I’m Jack Melvin and a little under fourteen years ago my will to serve lead me on a journey that would take me across the globe as a member of the Wisconsin Army National Guard. After 35 months spent overseas defending our country often in combat zones, I returned with a renewed appreciation for the Rule of Law. I’ve served to protect the life and liberty we enjoy, and have experienced first-hand the importance of the pursuit of justice.
Like my fellow veterans, I take great pride in approaching service as a lifelong commitment and an unrelenting duty. In the spring of 2020, I hope to earn your support so I can serve as your Waukesha Circuit Court Judge, Branch 5.
