Brief Biography of Jack Campbell, State Attorney, Second Judicial Circuit


As you know, Jack Campbell is our recently elected State Attorney for the Second Judicial Circuit of Florida which consists of six counties:  Leon, Gadsden, Jefferson, Liberty, Wakulla and Franklin—a large jurisdiction!  He is a hometown boy--raised in Tallahassee.   In high school, he was both on the football team and in the school chorus, and involved in many other academic and civic organizations.

 

After graduating Leon High School in 1991, Mr. Campbell received his B.A. at Florida State University, and his J.D. (in 2001) at Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama.   While at Cumberland, he was a member of a number of student law organizations, a National Dean’s List recipient, class president and convocation speaker for his law school graduation. 

 

Since that graduation and until his recent election, with the exception of a brief stint in private practice, Mr. Campbell has been an assistant state attorney in the Second Judicial Circuit of Florida handling major felony trial cases including homicide, sexual assault, narcotics and robbery.   He has also handled executive assignments in other judicial circuits.   Due to his interest in protecting children, he was appointed as a Special Assistant to the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Northern District of Florida, for the purpose of dealing with internet crimes against children.   He has taught at the Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy at Tallahassee Community College.

 

Some of his many volunteer activities include being a present or past member of the boards of directors of Refuge House, Boy Scouts of America, Leadership Tallahassee, the Boys and Girls Club, and Young Actors Theater.  He is a member of the Community Leadership Council on Gun Violence.  He has been involved with the American Cancer Society, the Tallahassee Exchange Club, Tiger Bay Club, and the William H. Stafford Inns of Court.

 

Mr. Campbell is married to the former Krista Mottern and has two children.
