Jack Pearson & The Importance Of The TV Dad

It’s. still. not. fair.

*cries*

The death of Jack Pearson continues to haunt fans, even when This Is Us is off season. Despite it being fiction, Milo Ventimiglia‘s iconic character makes fans feel something special. The best TV dads always do.

For some people, living vicariously through a story is the closest they may ever get to feeling that important relationship’s dynamic. It also has the power to help fans heal from the loss of their own family members. (Did you know show creator Dan Fogleman draws from the pain he endured when his mother past away?) And for others, it may just be the inspiration they need to reach out more to loved ones in the little time we have.

That’s why we think it’s only right to honor these characters on a day like Father’s Day. They may not be real people, but the emotions they conjure inside us are.
