Jeff was born in Gillette, Wyoming. While he was still very young, he and his family moved to Marion, Illinois where he lived until graduating high school. He was always active and dedicated a great deal of his time as a child to sports and the outdoors. He has always maintained that desire to be outdoors and close to nature as much as possible. His connection to Wyoming, along with the great opportunities to recreate and ski in the mountains nearby to Laramie, made the University of Wyoming an obvious choice for Jeff to attend college. He joined the Wyoming Air National Guard to help pay for college and his enlistment has taken him all over the world many times. That enlistment has turned into a career. His time spent in Laramie led him to his wife, Shelby, and together they began their own new and exciting adventure.
Laramie has always been where Jeff considered himself to be the most at home. He naturally chose to attend the University of Wyoming Law School and graduated from there in 2012. Throughout everything, Jeff has maintained his commitment with the Air National Guard. He knew that Laramie was home and quickly after graduation joined the firm of Cook and Associates, P.C., which allowed him to remain in Laramie. More importantly,Jeff began his legal career with a fellow Air National Guard Member who understood the commitment to being part-time military. That has been a great relationship and Jeff enjoys working as an Estate and Business Planning attorney.
When Carol Gonnella approached Jeff about taking over Teton Agents, the concept seemed to be an entirely natural progression. Jeff, Shelby, and Carol quickly became good friends and the estate planning connection between the two attorneys has led to a smooth transition of Teton Agents. Jeff is excited to have the blending of his legal career with the Registered Agent field and is incredibly proud and blessed to have his wife Shelby to partner with in this effort.
