Jack Furst’s lifelong relationship with the Boy Scouts of America began when he joined the organization as a 7-year-old Cub Scout. His time as a member of historic Troop 1 in Paoli, Pa. solidified a love for scouting and helped form a foundation on which Jack has built a successful life.
His Scouting experiences served as a source of inspiration when Jack was asked to head the Project Arrow Task Force and tasked to undertake the nationwide search for a permanent BSA-owned Jamboree site. Jack’s visionary leadership was instrumental in creating, designing, and developing what ultimately became the Summit Bechtel Family National Scout Reserve.
Jack is a private equity investor who manages his own investments in real estate, oil and gas, fixed income securities, and public and private equities. He is also an adjunct professor of finance and investments.
