Meet Jack Davids (13)
"It’s not easy being the new kid in town – AND the school headmaster’s son. But after Jack joins Parker and scientist J.B. in their local ghost hunter/paranormal investigator operation, the town of Newbury becomes a lot more exciting – and scary. Apart from his ghost dog Spencer, Jack’s biggest passion is his online video channel (BOO-Tube, anyone?) His live-streaming and excited commentary often distracts him from focusing on the job at hand. But when it counts, he’s brave and resourceful."
"No longer the new kid in town, Jack’s vlog is really starting to take off. He’s actually pretty obsessed with subscribers, likes, comments and view counts. But until his passion for videos starts to interfere with ghost hunting, it’s no big deal, right? …Right?"

"Student by day, ghost-hunter by night, live-streamer all the time! That’s Jack. Moving to Newbury wasn’t easy at first, what with being the new kid at school in a boring little town, and also his mom’s the headmaster, and the whole thing was just ugh. But now things are going great for Jack, and his vlog has really taken off. He may be spending just a little too much time making videos, though – especially after he meets his idol, vlogging superstar Rami. What’s the rest of the ghost-hunting squad going to say? Is his friendship with Parker about to take a hit as he chases more clicks and views? Nah, don’t think so. Those two are inseparable!"
Jack grew up in Boston with his mother, Rose Davids and pet dog, Spencer. He loved making vlogs and uploading videos of skateboarding tricks and other things together with Spencer and overall lived a happy life in the city until his mother announced they were moving to Newbury, a small southern town. Jack was horrified at the thought of leaving his home to move to the small town, which he referred to as "that backwater." A week after that Jack received many videos about paranormal activity from an unknown person in Newbury and one week after that Spencer was killed in a traffic accident due to his habit of chasing cars, leaving Jack even more heartbroken.
The week after Spencer's death, Jack and his mother moved to Newbury. When the family arrived to Newbury, Jack was still unimpressed by the town, referring to it as a "fishing village" but the town still had an eerie atmosphere that unsettled him, on their way home Jack and his mother nearly crash against the Paranormal Intercept Bus 3000 where Jack saw Parker trying to capture a ghost. Jack was amused by the sight and called her "a weirdo". Soon after that, Jack started attending Newbury High School while his mother became the principal of said school. Jack was bullied or ignored for being the son of the principal and his classmates dismissed his vlog as him "talking a lot of hot air online" although Jack did try to fit in by making crazy videos for his vlog. Later that day, Parker approached him at lunch break and revealed to him that she was the stranger from Newbury who sent him all the videos. Parker then showed him around the school and introduced him to the janitor Douglas and later J.B.. Parker and J.B. then revealed to Jack that they were Ghost Hunter who captured ghosts who wreak havoc in their town and offered Jack to join them, J.B. also gave him an app that allowed Jack to see Spencer, who had become a ghost and had been following Jack since his death.
Parker and Jack are sent to Newbury High School after getting reports of high levels of Ghost activity. When they enter, they spot Douglas who is possessed by a Ghost. They shoot him down, releasing the Ghost from inside of him and capturing it.
Soon, Jack takes off exploring after running away from Grandpa Sam. He enters a room where a Ghost is hiding and gets possessed by it. Fortunately, he is saved by Spencer who pulls on the Ghost.
After Parker got a notification by J.B., they try to exit but are surrounded by Ghosts. They use the elevator to escape, but the elevator malfunctions, sending the Hunters tumbling down.
Eventually, they find Mr. Nibs, who pops out of the stuffed teddy bear. He attacks the Hunters; however, they are able to escape with the help of Douglas. They head outside where they are greeted by J.B. in the Paranormal Intercept Bus 3000. J.B. prepares to shoot Mr. Nibs down with Jack and Parker joining in.
Jack wears a red-letter jacket as well as a white hooded sweatshirt and black pants with a brown belt that seems to have a brown wallet chain with a bone-shaped keyring hooked on it. His hat is red and black with three red diagonal lines on it. His sweatshirt also has three red lines where the right shoulder is. He has brown hair although the hat, as well as the hood of his sweatshirt, covers his hair. He also has a '+' shaped scar on his right cheek. From "Doom Buggy" to "The Great Escape", Jack doesn't wear his letter jacket, but retains his sweatshirt and pants, as well as wearing black gloves. While in the Hidden Side from "Grave Situation" to "The Great Escape," his face, gloves, and all portions of red on him are blue. Starting from "The Lighthouse, Part 1," Jack returns to wearing his letter jacket, but has his hood lowered and hat on backwards to reveal his hair.
Jack can get distracted very easily and is somewhat of a glory hogger, as he often posts videos on BOO-Tube, and believes he is a better Ghost Hunter than his friends. He mostly doesn't take ghost hunting seriously but understands its meaning. He also has a caring side as he cares for his dog, Spencer, and the safety of the Ghost Hunters, such as saving Parker from drowning and objects to Douglas' reckless actions.
