How to Romance Jack
In Mass Effect 3, there is no romance scene with Jack in the main story, but instead, it's more of an emotional intimate scene and players are basically committing to having a relationship with her. Jack must survive the events in Mass Effect 2, specifically, the Suicide Mission (Final Battle). Apart from that, you must have started a relationship with her in Mass Effect 2.
Romance for Jack in ME 2
During conversations between Jack and Shepard, there will eventually be an option to have casual sex with Jack, the option will still be available even after pursuing other romantic options like Tali or Miranda. After a sex scene, Jack will refuse to speak to Shepard anymore, claiming that there's nothing to talk about. But it is also possible to turn down the casual sex option, in this case, Shepard will have the chance to know her and have a relationship with a very different destiny. Jack will eventually open up, and talk a lot about her background. She will ask Shepard some time to think about everything. At the final mission stage, she meets Shepard in his Cabin and she will give in, showing a very emotional side.
Where to find Jack
Players must complete the mission Priority: Palaven first so that you can unlock the side mission where you can find Jack during the events of Grissom Academy: Emergency Evacuation. Speak to Samantha Traynor to learn more about Grissom Academy. During the side mission, choose paragon responses and when you are on the shuttle, wait for the Paragon event and use it when one of the students ask Jack how many tattoos she has.
IMPORTANT NOTE: the mentioned side mission can expire and you'll miss the opportunity to do so especially when you begin Priority: The Citadel II. If you progress the main mission, you won't be able to meet Jack and also fail in completing the side mission.
How to Lock in Jack
Meet at the Purgatory Bar
After helping her and the students, wait for an e-mail from her to meet her at the Purgatory Bar of the Citadel. Here is where you can formally address the relationship between you two. To start off, choose the dialogue "You look good", and when she reminisces about the past, choose "I want to be with you.". You'll now be in a relationship with Jack, but she won't make an appearance at the end of the game. Instead, when you are about to launch the final push towards the Conduit Beam, Shepard gives her a call, and the two have their last conversation.
Mass Effect 3: Citadel
For players who own the Citadel DLC, you'll have unique scenes with her on the Silversun Strip, your Personal Apartment where Jack gives you a tattoo, as well as the big party. Apart from that, there is also a Romance scene that is only available in the Citadel DLC.
