JACK DEVERAUX - (Matthew Ashford)
Jack Deveraux was adopted by Anjelica and Harper Deveraux. Jack had done some dastardly things. From raping his wife Kayla, breaking Harper out of jail to get his hands on Harper's Swiss bank account to blackmailing his way into owning half of The Salem Spectator.
Who would think the Jack we see today is the very same Jack, so I guess we can say Jack wasn't exactly the boy next door.
When Jennifer joined the newspaper's staff as a college intern this was a turning point in Jack's life. He had finally found his one true love. Jack and Jennifer were married and had a beautiful baby girl and named her Abigail. Jack was overcome by guilt, believing he was the cause of Abby's aplastic anemia, so he left town, leaving his wife Jennifer to deal with their daughter's illness.
Jack was sentenced to life in prison for "killing" Peter who was alive and in hiding. In the summer, Jack's appeal was denied, but he was later released.
After the Salem stalker supposedly killed Jack, Jennifer and Jack were once again reunited in the jungle, where she gave birth to their son Jack Jr. with the assistance of Patrick Lockhart.
The Salemites worked together to escape. Tony, of course, tried to stop them, but eventually they got off the island, only to be hit by a giant wave. Most of them were rescued by the Coast Guard, Jack was not one of them and was presumed dead.
Jack was still alive but, thanks to Tony DiMera, was again held hostage, this time in a remote European castle. He escaped and made it back to Salem, only to be tricked by a fake Jennifer. Jack was then taken back to the castle. He started digging and ended up in Roman and Marlena's room. Together, they made their escape, bringing Cassie along with them. They made it back to Salem to their loved ones, where Jack found out he was dying and decided to reunite Jennifer and her Ex-boyfriend Frankie to take over his family after his demise.
