    'Jack of all trades but master of none' is a saying which means that the person knows a little bit about lots of things, but unfortunately does not have enough knowledge about anything to make them a 'master' or an expert.
    'Give a damn' is a phrasal adjective which means that the person doesn't let things stress him. Or it could also mean someone who doesn't care about the worries or problems of another person.

    "Jack of all trade but master of none" means that this person can do many things, but in all of the things he does, he only does them averagely.
    "Give a d*m* sort of person" I haven't heard of personally but "give a d*m*" is a more vulgar way of saying care so it would probably mean the sort of person that cares
