Happy Jack Entertainment uses music and media as vehicles to promote and normalize the conversation around mental health


Jack Nathan



Both the name and company “Happy Jack” were created by Jack Nathan, the beloved late son of co-founder, David Nathan. Jack started “Happy Jack” to represent a safe haven for kids who struggle with all types of mental illness.


Jack left us suddenly on July 3, 2020, at only 19 years old, from an accidental fentanyl poisoning. He was a creative entrepreneur who used art, fashion, and music as a tool to make mental health okay to embrace amongst his community.


Jack struggled with mental health, but was not a victim. Happy Jack Entertainment will honor and celebrate Jack’s legacy, helping to fulfill what he started.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, “It is estimated that more than one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness (57.8 million in 2021).” 


We believe it is actually closer to 5 in 5. 


We strive to be a catalyst for change, encouraging others to embrace mental health discussions across all communities, transcending demographics and creating a more inclusive and compassionate world.
