Past History

Born in 2004, Jack Manning is the youngest of the Manning clan. Although we don't get to see this character often, Jack has already had to deal with many hardships and controversies surrounding his parents' sordid past.

At birth, his own father gave him away thinking Jack was the son of Max Holden while telling Blair that Jack had died! Jack was ready to replace Todd with Dr. Spencer Truman after growing close to Spencer during a time when his father couldn't be there for him. However, after his mother Blair uncovered Spencer's damaging secrets, she was able to run interference and bring Todd and Jack back together.

However, his family's happiness is always tested. Jack suffered through a time when he thought his father was dead, when he had really been kidnapped by Margaret Cochran. He was forced to deal with the many breakups of his parents, ultimately after his father couldn't handle his sister's pregnancy. With his mother having a restraining order on Todd, Jack was left to live at his aunt's mansion with his mom, Starr and little brother Sam - until his mother was stabbed and Todd regained temporary custody!

During his time at Todd's, Jack came upon Todd, Tea and Blair, passed out, then was left traumatized by Powell Lord, who he watched take away his parents. However, Jack fought his fears, opened up to John McBain and told him what happened.

When Jack found out that he had a sister named Dani, who Tea kept from Todd, he wasn't too receptive of her at first. It wasn't until they thought Tea had died that Jack went to Dani and comforted her by saying how much Tea meant to him too.

For weeks it was evident Shane Morasco was dealing with being bullied in school. Jack was revealed to be the one at the forefront of the bullying.

Jack's proven time and again that he's a chip off the old Manning block by using blackmail, which he credits learning from Todd, to get what he wants.
