Hi I'm Jeff

I grew up in Arizona. I enjoy competing in triathlons, vacationing with my family, and the Arizona State Sun Devils. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As a resident of Mesa, Arizona, I enjoy the dry heat. I went to college at Arizona State University and graduated with a degree in Accounting. After working as a Federal Agent for 6 years, I decide go into business with some good friends and started working in the mortgage banking industry. Prior to officially entering my mid life crisis, the big 40, I started training and competing in triathlons. I enjoy riding my bike, swimming in a Masters Swim Club, and running. I met my future wife as a river guide on the Colorado river as part of a bet with the river guides. After winning the bet, we fell in love rowing the rapids of the Colorado, and hiking in the canyons of Moab, Utah. We now have a wonderful family with three children. We are kept busy shuttling our kids to singing, dance, volleyball, softball, baseball, and soccer. We would not have it any other way.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Prior to serving a mission in Cleveland, Ohio I had to find out for myself if this really was Jesus Christ's church restored on the earth today. I prayed and put my faith in God, that I would know through the feelings of the Spirit if what I was doing and what I belived was right. I remember clearly feeling the love of God, confirming what I knew to be true. I am grateful for God's plan of happiness, and that He loves us enough to provide a way to find out truths for ourselves.

How I live my faith

I play an active role in my neighborhood and in my church. I live my faith by serving my fellowman. Jesus Christ taught to love one another and I believe that no matter your religion, we can all become a little more like our Savior by being kind and loving those around you. I have served in many capacities while being a member of the church. One of the best times of my life was while serving a mission for the church. I learned to love all those around me while serving them and teaching them about the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
