After completing an automotive technology program, Doug Jack, CPO, says that while he appreciated the technology and mechanical skills he had learned, he realized a career as an auto mechanic was not for him. While seeking alternative career options, a family friend encouraged him to check out Honolulu Orthopedic Supply, Hawaii, where the owner, Rodney Pang, CPO, gave him a tour of the clinic. The experience convinced Jack to pursue a career in O&P—that was in 1984. He then was offered a technical position at Ortho-Care, Arcadia, California, where he launched his career in O&P. As an orthotist and prosthetist, Jack continues to reap the rewards of helping people regain physical function.
