Jeff grew up in Northern California and attended The University of Utah where he received a degree in organizational communication and leadership studies. Shortly after graduation, he moved to Knoxville for a student ministry internship, and while he was there, he met his future wife, Tami. Shortly after that, they moved back west so he could work as a youth pastor. After a few years in Arizona, he and his wife couldn’t resist being away from Knoxville any longer -- so they moved back! Jeff enjoys spending time at local coffee shops, hiking and making crafts for their home decor business.
