Jack Defoe is the son of Willem Dafoe and his then partner Elizabeth LeCompte. Jack was born in 1982 in Accord, New York. Jack was born out of wedlock as, according to his mother, Elizabeth, marriage “represented ownership.” So, his parents remained unmarried till they separated in 2004

Jack Defoe is not walking in his father’s footsteps. He tries to remain anonymous as he dislikes being the centre of attention. As of July 2022, Jack works in public policy and is an avid environmentalist.

Jack Defoe is a Senior Policy and Research Associate and host of New York City Apollo Alliance, an organization that promotes sustainable and clean living. In an interview, Jack discusses his job, “the importance of labour”, and how it relates to global climate change. He also explains how the Apollo Alliance is “planning the future for America”.

In an Interview in 2002, Willem Defoe talked about his son Jack, saying, “I’ve never given Jack advice about women – I think it would be very oppressive for his old man to give him that kind of advice,”. He further added, “He has to find his way; I can’t help him to do that. I teach by example. Although I’ve been a terrible example,”
