Jacques is a former professional rugby player and retired as the most capped Currie Cup and Sharks player in SA. After retiring from rugby, he went on to work at the Sharks in several different capacities, while also coaching at various levels, including at Hilton College. Currently he is the GM of Parys Golf & Country Estate and mentoring and helping people reach their full potential is a real passion of his. As a devoted Christian, family man, husband to Nadia and father of 3, coaching rugby, reading and the odd round of golf take up the balance of his time. Jacques brings with him much business and life experience, particularly in the area of relationships for the Sport for Lives team. His humility and integrity shine through in everything that he does.
