I have a jack dempsey that i cannot figure out whats wrong. He gets weekly water changes and has good water conditions. He appears to have a hole above an eye with what looks like fungus on it. Any ideas what it is and what to do?

I'm not sure what is going on there. But would do a double strength methylene blue bath for 15 minutes, most of the white stuff should come off and give you a clearer view of the injury. Just make some in a glass jar or something, not your tank, it will stain your plants, silicone, and hardscape.
I'd also do a good water change, nothing like fresh clean water for the constitution. See if you can find some live food, maybe some earthworms or something.
