Detective Unexpectedly Adopts Two Pittsburgh Boys
Outside of work detective Jack Mook is a committed bachelor, a man’s man, who would never so much as let a Vidalia onion see his soft side.
For fun he hits people. He volunteers at the Steel City Boxing gym, teaching the sport to underprivileged kids.
Kids like 11-year-old Jessee and his 15-year-old brother Josh. Long before their date in court, Jack had been working with them.
What Mook didn’t know — what no one knew until that moment — was just how bad these kids had it. They were in a foster home with foster parents who Mook says were extremely abusive and neglectful. So Jack Mook took matters into his own hands. Cashed in some favors and got the kids placed in a new home: his.
