Jack “Ace” Troutman
I am Jack “Ace” Troutman, Founder and Knight at Kentucky Jedi, Founder and Knight at Gulf Coast Jedi, Knight at the Temple of the Jedi Order, and Knight and Council member with the International Jedi Federation.
I was born in Louisville, KY and moved around quite a bit. I spent my teenage years in Houston and Deer Park Texas. People will often hear me say that is where I am from and though technically not true, I consider Texas to be home. I have many lifelong friends and some family living there. I did manage to go to college, but not until I was 43 years old. I can tell you THAT was fun after being out of academia for so long.
I have my BSIS in Information Systems with a Minor in Computer Security and Web Development. I practice meditation, kickboxing, and I am a Jedi Realist. By Jedi Realist I mean that I do not just do online stuff, I get out in the real world and volunteer and help people in any way that I can. I am a part of the Citizen Crisis Response Team (CCRT) so that allows me to get some training here and there to help others.
June 24th, 2018 is a day that I will always remember. That is the day I stood before my peers and was Knighted within the community and the Jedi Federation. I am honored and blessed to be part of this community and will continue to do everything in my power to help others in any way I can.
I have 4 fantastic children and 4 absolutely beautiful grandchildren.
The life of a Knight, Manager, and Grandpa is never done. I am always busy, but life is what you make it, and I make mine good!
