At the time Jack Wiseman was born on November 5, 1943, the Texas coastal prairie south of Houston was still home to large expansive open land and ranching. Jack’s father worked on several ranches in the area and thus Jack was exposed to the ranching and cowboy lifestyle early in life.
Jack attended Texas City schools and competed in junior rodeos in the southeast Texas area. He joined the Southwest Rodeo Association after high school and was the champion bull rider in 1964 and 1967, qualifying for the finals in bull riding until 1973 when he won the average at the Texas Rodeo Association finals (formerly the SRA).
Jack joined the International Rodeo Association (now the IPRA) in 1969, where he won 4 bull riding championships in 1969, 1971, 1972, and 1973. He won 4 steer wrestling championships in 1978, 1979, 1980, and 1982 along with 3 All Around championships in 1969, 1971 and 1972 while living in Clarksville, Texas. He won the All-around at IFR 2 & 4, the bull riding average at IFR 4, the steer wrestling average at IFR 6 & 20, and throwing the fastest time in steer wrestling at IFR 4, 8, and 10. Jack qualified for the finals of the IPRA 25 of the first 26 years he competed.
Jack competed in one of the first jackpot bull ridings in 1974 in Amarillo, Texas where he won a first place check of $5000 – a large sum of money in that time period.
He competed in the bull riding and steer wrestling at all the major Texas rodeos. He is a gold card member in both the PRCA and IPRA rodeo associations. Jack was a winner in any rodeo association where he chose to compete.
Jack and his wife Leah have 3 children: B.J. Wiseman of Texas, and Jordan Wiseman and Colby Stufflebean of Oklahoma.
