A graduate of Cornell University, Combat Jack was a pioneer in hip hop. He was mostly known for his start as an attorney for Def Jam who later transitioned into executive roles for major companies like MTV. He would later host amazing interviews with hip hop legends like Chris Lighty.
In an interview with ADWEEK, Reggie enclosed his entire resume.

We throw around OG a lot. Combat Jack was a true OG.
He lived his shit. He kept pushing forward, pivoting his game, and lifting others along the way. He knew and valued the power of the next generation. And he would come up and tell you what was dope and what was wack.

When you can physically feel the impact someone has on the culture, you know it’s real. Combat’s aura & words resonated across generations of hip-hop, especially in the podcast game. If you had one conversation with him, you were better because of it. Rest well, @Combat_Jack 🙏🏽

RIP Combat Jack, who let us into his family and onto his podcast, who brought donuts to our apartment and carried stories for days. He left the Lil B show screaming "swag!" and saying he'd seen the future. A great laugh, a great mind, a great friend and a better man.

Me & Combat Jack had our verbal spars. Cancers of the zodiac are a passionate ilk. I have threads of our debates lingering in my gmail. We must continue the culture of respectfully challenging one another. It's healthy for hip-hop & for the world. RIP to a true trailblazer.

My heart is broken. Combat Jack was one of the kindest, most incredible people I knew. I tried to hire him 10x over the years, but he was smart enough to keep building his own empire. I loved that dude…I will really miss him. Thanks Reggie for your mentorship + friendship. RIP pic.twitter.com/XhWv7YaLEh

Dream those dreams, and live those dreams, because a life without dreams is black and white, and the universe flows in technicolor and surround sound. BLOAW! Thank you for the knowledge @Combat_Jack, rest in power! pic.twitter.com/U5rggAnTei
