GETTING TO KNOW JED


HOBBIES: Running, climbing mountains, camping and reading

PETS: 1 dog, Lily - she's a dirt digging, rock eating 1 year old Alabama hound dog

FAVORITE PLACE HE'S TRAVELED: Anywhere in the Caribbean

FAVORITE BOOK: Too many to list... however, Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand and The ONE Thing by Gary W. Keller and Jay Papasan are great

FAVORITE MOVIE QUOTE: "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." - Coach Carter

BIGGEST FEAR: Fear is an illusion... however, the illusion of not being on top of the food chain gets my attention

FIRST JOB: Pizza Maker at Pizza Shoppe - an awesome job with an incredible owner (remained friends until his death a few years ago)

SOMETHING ON HIS BUCKET LIST: Climb the highest peaks on every continent with my boys (except the Asian Continent)
