Mayor, Town of Chino Valley
Jack W. Miller was born in Dallas, Texas in 1957, the baby of seven children. His father was an aerospace engineer and mother a homemaker. The family lived in several states, settling in Phoenix in 1966.
He relocated to Prescott after a weekend visit, where he began his career with U.S. Electrical Motors. He worked as a machinist from 1975 through 1987; there he met his wife Jeri. They were married in 1981 and relocated to Chino Valley.
In 1987, he became a firefighter with the Chino Valley Fire District; the “best job in the world,” he says. He earned his associate’s degree in fire science and business administration. He retired from the district as a battalion chief at the end of 2010 after suffering a knee injury.
Jack and Jeri have two sons who live in Kingman with their families; each works for local fire departments.
Jack says most rewarding to him has been serving the public; he has always enjoyed trying to find a resolution to people’s problems.
