What does Uncle Jack represent?

Atticus's brother, John Hale Finch, seems to the children to be everything Atticus is not. The kids call him Uncle Jack, and he is the life of the party, much like you might expect a single younger brother to be. He is a doctor, and he is also a lot of fun. He is the one who gives Jem and Scout what Atticus will not.

Regarding this, why is Uncle Jack important in To Kill a Mockingbird?
