Jack Deen is the grandson of Paula Deen, the former Food Network star who was recently involved in a scandal where she was accused of abusing her employees and using the n-word. He was born in 2006, and his parents, Jamie and Brook Deen, couldn’t have been happier. There is little evidence to support that Jack has autism. He enjoys cooking with his parents, and even contributed several recipes to his father’s book Jamie Deen’s Good Food. In 2012 he judged a gingerbread decorating contest at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort and Spa, supporting the Savannah Harbor Foundation.
