Jack Osbourne first caught America’s attention on the hit reality show The Osbourne’s (MTV, 2002-2004) and since then has produced a number of film and television projects in addition to serving as a co-anchor and host for live daily news shows, such as Fuse News. Most recently, Jack and his father, Ozzy Osbourne, iconic vocalist of the heavy metal band Black Sabbath, hit the road for a father-son journey across the US to film Jack and Ozzy’s World Detour, produced by Jack’s production company, Osbourne Media (History Channel, A&E, 2016-present). He also continues to produce webisodes for the award winning You Don’t Know Jack About MS® campaign, in partnership with Teva Neuroscience. In addition to these projects, Jack is also CEO, founder, and lead designer of Tier1-Dad, a military-inspired baby product line.
In 2012, Jack was diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), the most common form of MS. The diagnosis came just three weeks before Jack and his wife, Lisa, had their first daughter, Pearl. In 2015 Jack and Lisa welcomed their second child, Andy, adding to the Osbourne family. Since Jack’s diagnosis and third place finish on the TV dancing competition Dancing with the Stars, Jack has also appeared on ABC’s Battle of the Network Stars, demonstrating how he maintains an active and healthy lifestyle despite his diagnosis with RRMS. In addition to a number of awards and accolades Jack has received for the You Don’t Know Jack About MS® campaign, in 2013 Jack was honored at Nancy Davis’ 20th Annual Race to Erase MS Gala for his courage in announcing his diagnosis, as well as for acting as a role model for others who are living with MS. Today, Jack continues to pursue his dreams and works as a passionate MS patient advocate, speaking out about the need for greater awareness of and additional research for MS.
