Jackie Moore

Joplin, Missouri

Upon meeting Jackie Moore for the first time, you quickly learn he's not into nuance. At first introduction, he measures you up with the intense eye of a practiced appraiser - someone who's spent almost 3/4 of his life in the livestock auction business. His handshake telegraphs his confident nature. In his corner of the world, he moves like a heavyweight champ, exchanging greeting and flinging one-liners in all directions to a public that all seem to know him. He admits to having a short attention span, a trait he says serves him well in his chosen profession. He seems to operate at just one speed; flat out.
