It’s no secret that Jack Pearson — the patriarchal character on NBC’s hit show This Is Us — is just slightly short of perfect. Between the way he raised his children to the compassion he had for others, there is a lot one can swoon over. But what many fans admire the most about Jack is the undying love he had for his wife, Rebecca Pearson. These two have been #relationshipgoals since the pilot episode, prompting fans on Twitter to want a “Jack” in their own life.
“Jack Pearson is the kind of man I wanna marry #ThisIsUs,” one person tweeted. Another shared, “Jack Pearson is the man, husband, and father every girl deserves. Jack Pearson speaks… cue the tears #ThisIsUs.”
And while finding someone exactly like him might be difficult since Jack somehow always knew what to say, his love for Rebecca still had viewers falling head over heels for them scene after scene. We decided to take a look at some of the moments during Jack and Rebecca’s relationship that proved he was the kind of guy we all want in our own lives. Keep scrolling and relive some of the best Jack and Rebecca memories from Season 1 and 2.
Jack made sure Rebecca knew she was his everything — even before they met.
He told her, “You know when I was a little boy I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up. Adults always ask little kids that. I never had a good answer. Not until I was 28. Until the day that I met you. That’s when I knew exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wanted to be the man that made you happy.” Doesn’t get any more romantic than that!
And he made it clear that Rebecca became his whole world.
“You’re not just my great love story Rebecca. You were my big break. And our love story, I know it may not feel like it right now, but baby, I promise you, it’s just getting started.” Seriously, where are all the men in real life that talk like this?
Not only did Rebecca show Jack a different kind of love, but she also gave him a family.
Jack chatted with Miguel while Rebecca was still pregnant and said, “But I still don’t want to escape her. Or my future vomiting, crap-riddled kids. I just, want more time with them. I want to freeze time with them, so that I can get a little bit more.”
And as hard as raising their kids were, he still loved the mother and person Rebecca was.
He told her, “I love the mother that you are. I love that you are still the most beautiful woman in any room and that you laugh with your entire face. I love that you dance funny, not sexy, which makes it even sexier, but most of all, I love that you are still the same woman who all those years ago ran out of a blind date because she simply had to sing.”
Through their ups and downs, Jack was in this relationship until death do them part.
“You find your soul mate, you get married, you stay together until you die. Period.” You can find us waiting here, impatiently, for our own Jack Pearson to come along and act even just half as incredible as this fictional character. Period.
