Jack Mabaso (2002 - 2004, 2015 - to date) is a fictional character created by Mfundi Vundla for the South African soap opera, Generations, and portrayed by Vusi Kunene. The early version of Jack Mabaso was a ruthless crime boss who lived in a hotel closely associated with his henchmen and often engaging in crime, gambling, heists, extortion and business hostile takeovers.

Jack Mabaso was involved numerous conflicts and controversies most notably with business moguls Tau Mogale and Sibusiso Dlomo. He was a long time lover of businesswoman Busisiwe Dlomo who was also the sister of his rival Sibusiso Dlomo. Jack Mabaso died during a heist and was later brought back.

The new iteration of Jack Mabaso is largely a criminal, however, the stark contrast to the old version is that he lives more a family oriented life. The new Jack Mabaso returned with a wife and children and despite being a criminal, he runs a legitimate business.
