“Don’t be afraid to give your life a second chance,” the statement is something that this man leaves behind. The veteran gold prospector, Jack Huffman kept his dream alive in spite of his early failure. His dedication towards the gold mining led his son, Todd to follow the footsteps of his father and their success story keeps getting bigger and is one of the storylines in the Discovery’s reality series “Gold Rush.”
Career and Progression:
In the 1980s, he headed off on a mission to dig gold and support the financial status of his family. But he saved a mere 4 dollars in 10 years’ time and thought that he is a disgrace to the family and failed them miserably. In early 2010, his vision and aim are survived by his son Todd Huffman who formed a group of six friends and mines in the field of Alaska.
Jack is often dubbed as the Inspiration as he inspired his son Todd to follow Jack’s passion for gold mining. He and his son got exposure to the outer world when they became the celebrated cast of Discovery’s TV series called “Gold Rush.” The Show premiered on 3rd December 2010 while its latest installment, i.e., the seventh season aired on 14th October 2016. Now, the business runs to the third generation as his grandson, Hunter joined the crew and also appeared in “Gold Rush” since the sixth season.
How Much is Jack’s Net Worth?
“The Inspiration” began gold mining almost three decades ago but couldn’t earn significant fortunes back then. But on the seventh season, Jack and Todd’s crew extracted more than 1100 ounces of gold which explains their stable economy now.
As per wiki sources, this former militant accumulates his net worth through his gold mines and also considerably from the salary that he receives from the Discovery network which is yet to reveal. He has summoned a decent net worth of $250,000 over the course of his long career.
