Jack Gurecki, lead singer of Ignite The Fire, was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome at the age of four. Regardless of this, Jack hasn't let it hold him back and has been chasing his dream of being a rock star. While it's a struggle for him, he's still fighting to bring the dream to life.
Interacting isn't always easy for Jack. He's a very nice guy but doesn't understand the subtle nuisances that make for social interaction. Not always understanding sarcasm and tends to take things literally. He av eye contact and can come off as quirky.
Even though he has Asperger's syndrome, he's worked hard to become a force to be reckoned with on stage.
“Once you are off that stage, and you don’t have that command, and people are allowed to be themselves in front of you and expect you to be a certain way in front of them, well, it can be very intimidating.” - Jack Gurecki
