Original founder of Weyland Consortium, Jack Weyland masterminded the audacious Beanstalk project, creating a space elevator from New Angeles to Earth orbit. His company continues to reap the rewards of his ambition in the form of massive Beanstalk royalties earned every time people or cargo are shipped via the space elevator.
Jack Weyland's age is unknown, but he has recently undergone "rejuve" treatment and seems to be as healthy as ever.
