Jed is no stranger to DePauw, as he has grown up in Greencastle his entire life. While his love for the campus influenced his decision to join the admissions team his desire to share his own college experience and value for education impacted his decision as well. Jed considers the friendships and relationships he developed in school the most important part of his collegiate experience and hopes to guide many students to experience the same fulfillment at DePauw. Jed’s goal is to bring his contagious sense of humor to the team, all the while leading students to discover their true self and place within DePauw’s community.
In his free time, you will find Jed helping out with DePauw’s men’s and women’s tennis teams, as he aspires to possibly be a head or athletic director one day. Jed is not only a fan of tennis though, as he is also an avid watcher of college basketball, the NFL, and enjoys golfing in his spare time. You will often see Jed riding his bike or walking his dog around campus with airpods while listening to the latest music. Jed is most excited for the possibility of traveling across the country for admissions, as he loves discovering hole in the wall restaurants and seeing what all nature or history has to offer in a given area.
