Jack Pearson is one of the greatest television dads we've seen in a long while. It's refreshing to see a dad who gets involved in the kids' lives in a time in television where the dads are seen as clueless, especially when it comes to their kids. In preparation for our hearts to be ripped out of our chests when we find out what happened to him, here's a look at all the reasons to love Jack Pearson.

1. He can Vogue.
