Hi I'm JJ

I grew up in a small town in north Idaho called Hayden Lake. I enjoy golf, tennis, and watching my kids play sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy a fulfilling career in Biopharmaceutical sales with Amgen. I sell various biologic medications to hospitals and physician groups across northern Phoenix. I enjoy helping improve the lives of patients who suffer from various types of morbid illnesses. I find a lot of enjoyment in partnering with my wife in raising four wonderful kids. Do not get me wrong, there are moments when we feel the best descriptor for our family is "Kaos," but I know that being a good parent is a process. I get a kick out of the things my kids enjoy and say from day to day. It is those precious family moments that put my career in perspective. We love to travel as a family. We spend a lot of time at the Disney parks, most especially Disney World. We hope as the kids get older those vacations will evolve into european vacations and other continental vacations. I always enjoy sneaking in a round of golf with friends, or some occasional evening tennis with friends and family on a hot Phoenix summer night. There is nothing better than spending time outside under the blue phoenician skies!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I seek to understand and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. The principles we are taught and asked to follow help me grow closer to my Father in Heaven through the companionship of the Holy Ghost. I know that the Atonement of Jesus Christ has the power to save all men and women on this earth no matter what errors or mistakes they have made. Our Savior only requires that we seek him in faith and ensure that we take action to forfeit sin and follow his perfect example to the best of our ability. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Later-Day Saints has the priesthood authority to seal families together for time and all eternity. Families are the essential until of strength here on earth, and they provide a critical environment to teach children life saving gospel principles that can help us return o our Father in Heaven. I know that God continues to call prophets in these latter days to guide the Church through revelation. These revelations given in our day continue to direct and guide us to follow paths that bring us closer to Our Savior. I know that God loves his people enough to keep a two-way communication channel open at all times, and that simple prrayers are always heard by a loving Father.

How I live my faith

We enjoy attending church on a weekly basis as it gives us a chance to renew our covenants with God through the Sacrament. I have the current opportunity to serve with the full-time missionaries as the ward mission leader. I am always thrilled when we come in contact with people who want to learn more about our Savior and his Gospel. I know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ can improve the lives of all who embrace and live its teachings.
