Please, can somebody tell me if there's any difference in meaning between "jack of all trades" and "handyman" or "handyperson"?

Hi, JessyA—"Jack of all trades" is a bit broader, and less common, than "handyman." Whereas "handyman" is typically applied to a man who is handy with household repairs and construction tasks, "jack of all trades" could be applied to someone who "wears many different hats," like someone who works as a bank teller in the afternoon, a DJ at night, and a librarian in the morning.
