Jack Henson, Sr. was discharged from the U.S. Army in 1918 following his service with the U.S. troops in France and the conclusion of World War I. Born in Missouri, he headed to Texas looking for work and a new start. He ran out of money in Waco, Texas.
Jack Sr. found employment with the Standard Printing Company, the largest such establishment in the Waco area. He worked as an outside salesman until 1923 when Standard Printing filed for bankruptcy.
During his tenure with Standard Printing, Jack Sr.’s customers became his friends. They encouraged him to open his own business offering their support as customers. So, out of the bankruptcy of Standard Printing, came the birth of Henson Office Supply in 1923.
