James Jacks - Producer

James "Jim" Jacks (December 29, 1947 – January 20, 2014) was an American film producer of several blockbuster films.

Jacks grew up in a military family. He graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and from Cornell University with an MBA. He was working as a Wall Street financial analyst when he decided to be a screenwriter. Unsuccessful, he became head of production at Circle Films in the early- to mid-1980s and then senior vice-president of production at Universal Studios from the late-1980s into the early-1990s. In 1992, he became an independent producer with Alphaville Films, which he co-founded with Sean Daniel. He left Alphaville Films in 2004.

Jacks died on January 20, 2014 of a heart attack at his Los Angeles home at the age of 66.
