Jarrid was originally born in Florida but only lived there until the age of 5. For he next 15 years of his life, he and his family lived overseas between Germany and England, where his parents served in a ministry loving on Military families and their teens. Jarrid had the unique opportunity of growing up as both a missionary kid and a military brat. He often jokes that he belongs nowhere but fits in anywhere! After graduating high school, Jarrid moved back to the US and completed his undergraduate in Psychology as he pursued his dream in a career training Dolphins. But, after getting his “dream” job, he realized it was his dream, but not Gods design for him. So, Jarrid packed up and moved to Anchorage, AK and spent the next 10 years there, enjoying the beauty of Gods creation and investing in people. While in Alaska, Jarrid met and married his best friend, Rachel, and they have two amazing children who bring a wealth of joy and laughter! As a family, they love to be outside and are greatly enjoying the sunshine of Colorado, though slightly confused at the bipolar nature of the weather. I mean – come on – how can you go from 80 degrees to snow?!
