Fun Facts

  • I enjoy food from all cultures, and twice ate a 10 lb. challenge burger just to see if I could.
  • I’m strong and athletic, but you could fit my amount of sports talent in a thimble and still have room to spare.
  • There’s the Detroit Lions, Detroit Teams, and everyone else. One day, Detroit will dominate the sports scene.

About Jeff

I grew up in the suburbs of Michigan, just outside of Detroit. I was always the child who didn’t want to be the center of attention, but craved to be where the action is. After High School, I left for Bob Jones University where I earned my Bachelor’s in English Language and Literature. It was at college that I came out of my shell and found that I had a passion for serving.

A short time after, I enlisted in the Marines. During my four years, I spent time in four different countries; spent three months at sea on a small aircraft carrier; crossed the equator; fired weapons only military and gamers get to interact with, and started my Master’s Program in Teaching Secondary Education.

I moved to Florida in Oct 2018. Once I left the Marines, I wanted somewhere I could find work, inexpensive housing, and a church I didn’t have to hunt for. I had been to BLDG 28 several times previously visiting my pseudo-adopted Rice family. You could tell God was leading me here. Only in Florida did everything start to line up. I found work rather quickly; housing was affordable; BLDG 28 welcomed me with open arms; and I met the woman who would become my wife.
