I'm just a regular guy advocating for peace and freedom
Jimmy was born and raised in a rural farming community in Southwest Missouri. After earning a degree in Physics and Mandarin Chinese from Missouri State University, he moved with his young family to Salt Lake City to pursue a Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Utah. While attending the U, Jimmy became interested in education and postponed his graduate studies to pursue a teaching career. He has loved teaching and coaching, first in San Juan County and currently in Wasatch County. Jimmy, his wife Tahnee, and their children have been residents of Utah for nearly ten years. They have fallen in love with the beauty of Utah, and in 2018, they officially made Utah their home when they participated in a community home building program and worked with nine other families to build their first home.
