Jack Webb was born to Benjamin Bosserman and Lula Cochrane on May 11, 1922 in Sharon Springs Kansas. Benjamin was killed in a railroad accident before Jack was even one year old. His mother later married Jasper Webb, who adopted Jack.
Growing up in Sharon Springs, Jack worked at the old Conoco station and was a life guard at the town swimming pool. He was an excellent athlete, participating in football, basketball and track. He was an especially good sprinter and set a state record for the 220 yard dash. After high school he enrolled at Colorado University, now the University of Colorado. At college he had an opportunity to play collegiate football, but it only lasted one year before WWII intervened and his college education was interrupted.
