From Hobart, Tasmania - Riewoldt has been Richmond's goal kicking spearhead for over ten years. He continues the Richmond tradition of full-forwards (Matthew Richardson) who wear their passion on their sleeves.
Between 2010 and 2018, Riewoldt kicked 50 goals or more on eight occasions. His highest goal kicking season is 78 goals in 2010.
His streak of 86 consecutive games up until mid 2017 was interrupted when he suffered a cut cornea and bleeding in the eye during a training mishap.
He played in his cousin Nick's final match - Rd 23 Rich vs StKilda at the MCG. He and Josh Bruce chaired Nick off the ground.
Jack was co-vice captain in Richmond's premierships of 2017, 2019, 2020.

“It’s great celebrating and it’s great having fun with the guys. More importantly, I’ve just had so many people come up to me, who were just as excited as what I was when the (final) siren went. It shows how important it is to so many other people. And I’m really proud of that. It’s just been an amazing year." (RFC Oct 13 2017)

His premiership celebration gained notable attention after he was invited on stage, in full playing outfit and wearing his premiership medal, to sing 'Mr Brightside' with the band The Killers.

For the 2019 season, Richmond supporters were salivating at the prospect of new recruit Tom Lynch alongside Riewoldt causing havoc in the forward line. In Round 2 Riewoldt suffered an arm injury that sidelined him for several weeks. Upon his return in Round 5 he suffered a knee injury. He recovered, and on Grand Final day kicked 5.1 against GWS

In the 2020 Grand Final he kicked 2.2
In total he kicked 9.6 across the 3 Grand Finals he played in.

On August 15, 2023 Riewoldt announced he would retire from football after the Round 23 match vs Nth Melbourne.
His 347 games are the second-most at Richmond behind Kevin Bartlett's 403.
His 786 goals are the third-most at Richmond behind Matthew Richardson 800, and Jack Titus 970.
