Hi I'm Jeff

I'm a Husband, Father, UPSer, Thunderbird, and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married and have a cute little girl who is about one year old. I'm currently a graduate student studying online at the Thunderbird School of Global Management. I'm also a long-time employee of UPS and love to keep busy in life!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because of the amazing difference it's made in my life. I grew up in a family that was part of the Church, and I'm so grateful that I was able to learn and grow in a very loving and supportive environment. I always had so many good friends and neighbors that were kind to me and concerned about my welfare. Having that sense of community no matter where you go is very precious to me.

How I live my faith

I love to find information about my ancestors. Many of my ancestors are from Sweden and I've always enjoyed getting to know them better. It's amazing to see how different life was so many years ago, and yet how similar it was in many cases as well. The Gospel teaches us that families can be together forever, and it's so important that we learn about our family and preserve records about them so our children and grandchildren will also be able to enjoy learning about them as well.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

I was a missionary in Hiroshima, Japan some years ago. The reason I chose to go on a mission was so I could share all the wonderful teachings that have helped me so much in my life to be happy. The Gospel of Jesus Christ truly is the way to lasting peace and happiness in our lives. Show more Show less
