He has built long term relationships with experienced real estate developers, sponsors, and syndicators over his 20+ year career.

He repositioned properties as well as modified and restructured loans for borrowers.

In 2014, Jack entered into a partnership with a large private equity fund and led the asset management arm of the firm that made over 3 billion dollars in purchases of non-performing and re-performing mortgage debt between 2015 and 2019.

An entrepreneur by nature, Jack decided to start JK Asset Management to focus on alternative assets such as value-add multifamily real estate. He then launched the JKAM Diversified Real Estate Fund in September 2020 and is launching a 2nd Diversified Fund in 2022.
