Haley was born on August 10, 1897 at 166 F St., Boston, Massachusetts, to Canadian-born (Nova Scotia) parents of Irish descent, John Joseph Haley Sr. and Ellen Curley Haley. His father was a waiter by trade, and later a ship's steward. He died in the wreck of the schooner Charles A. Briggs at Nahant, Massachusetts on February 1, 1898, when Jack was almost six months old. He had one older brother, William Anthony "Bill" Haley, a musician, who died of pneumonia in 1916 at the age of twenty-one after contracting tuberculosis. ()
