Born on August 6, 1927 in Swifton, Arkansas to John and Nellie Campbell, the seventh son of seven brothers.  His parents died when he was young, he was only four when his mother died and eleven at the time of his father's death.  

It was his father's wish that Jack live with the oldest son, Bill Campbell, who was about 20 years older than Jack and a minister.  Many people think that Jack was Bill's son instead of his brother because of the age difference and due to the fact that Bill's son was just one year younger than Jack

The first singing group formed by Jack included his nephew Billy and his wife Kathryn, Jack and his wife Vivian.  They traveled extensvely as an evangelistic team, conducting revivals and childrens churches. Due to the health problems of his nephew Billy, the group had to disband.

Jack formed other groups and sang locally at concerts and church services for a number of years.  In 1969 Jack formed the now notorious, "Jack Campbell and the Ambassadors".  There were two members age twelve and three who were age nine.  The group remained the same until they graduated high school and new members were added from time to time.  One of the new members, added in 1974, was Charlene Hill who later became Mrs. Charlene Campbell, the wife of Jack Campbell until his death in 2007.  There have been about 35 different members who have had the pleasure of calling themselves "Ambassadors"through the years.  Many members have gone on to sing or play with nationally known groups.
