Set your /home/jack so that everyone has read access. Maybe 754 or 755. 
Also make sure /home/jack/public_html has at least read access for everyone.
Again something like 754 or 755. Try bringing up web page again in
public_html folder. If you still don't see the folder contents, create a
file and try and access it directly

http://yourserver/~jack/somefile.html If that works, then the problem is w/
showing directory contents and not w/ the permissions.
