How to find 2nd largest value in a column?
MAX finds the largest value. =LARGE(A:A,2) will find the second largest. =SMALL(A:A,3) will find the third smallest

It would help if you showed us what the three example names should look like after JACK is replaced.

How I understand you need this:

Code:
Sub Macro_Replace()
    Range("A1:A50").Replace What:="*JACK*", Replacement:="JACK"
End Sub
