Rodney JackJack was spotted by Torquay United manager Eddie May when playing for FC Lambada, a Caribbean select side, Don O'Riordan signed him for the Gulls on October 10, 1995. He joined Newcastle United on trial in September 1996, Kevin Keegan offering 250,000 for him, but the deal fell through due to problems with his work permit. With the attention being placed on him from higher levels it was inevitable that Jack would move on at some point, and on July 17, 1998 he moved to Crewe Alexandra for a club record fee of 650,000. He had played 110 times, scoring 30 goals for Torquay.

He immediately settled into the Crewe side, scoring 9 goals in his first season, but injuries and international call-ups hampered his progress. He is a legend at Crewe. He played 188 times and scored 42 goals for Crewe before signing for Rushden & Diamonds in 2003 playing 49 games and scoring 13 goals before following manager Brian Talbot to Oldham Athletic in 2004.

His time with Oldham was blighted by injuries and the club released him in 2005. He joined Irish side Waterford United and in the summer of 2006 he rejoined Crewe Alexandra on a one-year contract, at the end of which he was released on a free transfer. In July 2007, he trialed for Conference North side Southport, playing in a friendly against Tranmere Rovers, in which he set up the only goal of the game.

He was offered a contract by Southport manager, Peter Davenport, before returning to his home country to deal with "family commitments" which were eventually revealed as aiding his father in recovering from an illness. On returning to England he is now back training with Southport and has now joined full-time till the end of the season, his experience shone through in the 5-1 thrashing of fellow promotion chasers AFC Telford Utd.
