Faces of FOSS: Jack Bursk
How long have you worked for FOSS?
About 3 years now!
What is your favorite part of working for FOSS?
Honestly, I love hopping in the water to teach and play with the kids! Cracking silly jokes in class and getting groans and some eye rolls is what keeps me going.
What is your favorite swim lesson activity to do with kids and why?
Cannon balls at the end of class. They’ve earned their playtime, plus it’s fun to see them let loose and just have fun in the water.
What is your personal favorite water activity?
I really like diving to the bottom of the pool and just float around. The weightlessness and muffled silence is almost relaxing!
Can you tell us your favorite FOSS story?
Back sometime in my second session, when I had really long hair, one of my swimmers named Charlie stopped me and said, “You know, Mr. Jack, you look like a wet rat.” Thanks Charlie, I needed that. I got a haircut a week later!
