Jeff grew up in a family with a tradition of service to this country, and after high school he followed in his father’s footsteps and enlisted in the military. He proudly wore the uniform of the U.S. Army from 1987 to 1990, serving two years as an MP and then as a unit armorer as an E-4 corporal. Following an honorable discharge, he worked as a police officer with the Department of Defense while he was a military spouse. He then got a job as a forklift driver and started climbing up the ladder to a supervisor’s position.

Jeff decided to run for Congress in 2020 because he was tired of elected officials offering pandering and empty promises then betraying working families when it came time to vote, and chose to step up and make a second run on January 6th to defend American democracy. He aims to bring the perspective of a regular Ohio working man to a Washington run by millionaires owned by billionaires.
