Hi I'm Jared

I'm a project manager in the commercial construction industry. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in an LDS home and have been blessed through my membership in the church throughout my life. I served a full-time mission in California when I was nineteen. Construction is something I was drawn to because I love hard work and creating things. I receive great joy and satisfaction out of taking a raw piece of land and creating something great and of lasting value. I love to watch the hundreds and even thousands of hands that come together on a complicated project to create a great building. I love taking something that has been imagined on paper and make it a reality. I love to snow skiing, play basketball, and golf. We have had a wonderful time as a family skiing together. I have an amazing wife and six wonderful children. Although things are hectic at times at home, we receive great strength and guidance by living the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are so grateful for the blessings of Christ in our home. The gospel continues to help us in raising our children.

Why I am a Mormon

I’m a Mormon because I want to do find God and follow his plan. I have found the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to be true. I find in it the true gospel of Jesus Christ. I find in it the blessing of the Holy Ghost. I find the gifts of the Spirit. I find miracles. I find the saving ordinances of the gospel and the priesthood. Most importantly, I find God and his beloved son Jesus Christ. Through my membership and service in the church, I have developed an abiding and firm testimony of Jesus Christ and his mission as the Savior of the world. I have learned that it is only in and through his atoning sacrifice that mankind can be saved.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by service to God and my fellow men. I serve with the young men in our congregation. We meet together during the week for activities and we meet on Sundays for lessons catered to the needs of the young men. I serve the other members of our community when opportunities arise. Most importantly, I serve as the father in our home. As the father, I’m responsible to provide, protect, and preside over the choicest blessings God had given me—my wife and children.
