After graduating high school Jared served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in El Salvador, Central America.
Jared attended UVU (then UVSC) when he, like many others, felt the call to serve his country following the 9/11 attacks. In 2002 he became an Arabic Linguist and served for several years. He was then selected for a highly competitive commissioning program where the Air Force sent him back to school to finish his degree and commission as an Intelligence Officer for the Air Force. He graduated from the University of Utah with a degree in Middle East Studies/Arabic.
While on active duty Jared earned his master’s degree from American Military University in Strategic Intelligence/Competitive Intelligence. After ten years of service, he decided to leave active duty, join the guard/reserves and attend law school at the University of Wyoming College of Law.
He graduated from law school a semester early (December 2014) and passed the Wyoming bar exam in February 2015. He has spent most of his legal career working bankruptcy (creditor rights), estate planning, real estate, and corporate/business law. He is currently licensed in Wyoming and is awaiting his application approval from the Utah State Bar.
