Jeff grew up in the little town of Pataskala, Ohio, located thirty miles east of Columbus. Before coming to PSU in July of 2010, he worked as the Facilities Coordinator for Oregon Athletic Clubs. Besides the day-to-day surprises and challenges of his job, Jeff particularly enjoys working as a team to bring the Campus Rec vision into a reality. Outside of work Jeff takes pleasure in exploring new places, fishing, hunting, and boating: power boat, kayak, or canoe. Most of all, Jeff enjoys hanging out with his wife Erin and their two hound dogs, Bella and Stella.
