Character Bio

AGE: 65
BACKGROUND: Gold Miner, Bush pilot, Ex-Military

Jack Hoffman is a man on a mission. Twenty-five years ago, he mined for gold in Alaska and came close to losing everything. The experience got under his skin, and now he's getting a second chance to live his dream; and this time he is determined to do it right. Driven by his desire to find gold, Jack has boundless energy and is as tough as they come. He gets up before dawn and works round-the-clock without stopping for food or rest. By his own admission, he'll do whatever it takes — even if it ends up killing him. A self-made man who served in the military and is a pillar of his local church, Jack is a sure shot with a rifle and arguably the most skillful machine operator on the team. Whether he's bow hunting bear or landing a bush plane in zero visibility, there isn't a lot that scares Jack Hoffman. He's happy to take risks and follow his gut instinct, which can cause friction with his son, Todd, who prefers a more methodical approach.
