Founder & CEO
Jeffrey is the owner of Printing Services of Nevada and minority owner of Jose and Associates Screen Shop which is the parent company of Miller's Jackets and Uniforms. He studied International Relations at Mankato State University from 1990 - 1994 with an emphasis on the Middle East, Russia, and the other 14 republics of the former Soviet Union. Jeffrey, who has coached 3 high school sports every year for nearly 7 years, saw the importance in what Carrie Reynolds was doing in spreading awareness about suicide.

In the early months of the pandemic, he decided to create Motivation United, Inc. to spread awareness about suicide and mental health.
