Jack Bartlett

This year finds Jack facing life on his own when Lisa must spend time away from Heartland for a family emergency. Jack feels at loose ends, but a reunion with an old friend gives him some much-needed perspective. Jack remains the patriarch of Heartland, but cool-headed leadership proves difficult when tension arises at home between he and Tim. When devastating news reaches the family, Jack retreats to grieve, but that choice may leave him in serious danger. Throughout it all, Jack will, as always, be the voice of reason and will support his family as they deal with their own individual triumphs and struggles.
