Jared received his first Idaho educational experience moving sprinkler pipe in the Idaho potato fields and branding calves in the corals of Southeast Idaho. Jared has strong roots to Eastern Idaho, not only in his work experience, but growing up alongside family members that live up and down the I-15 corridor of Eastern Idaho.
Jared received an AAS from Ricks College (now BYU-Idaho), a BBA from Boise State University, and an MBA from the University of Phoenix. Jared holds a CMA (Certified Management Accountant) and CFE (Certified Fraud Examiner) designations.
Immediately after college, Jared worked for Boise Cascade for several years then accepted an employment opportunity out-of-state, but returned to the place he calls home - Southeast Idaho - to work for a small growing company called Spudnik Equipment Co., which has grown by 300%.
Jared and his family are very active in football, soccer, cheerleading and CrossFit, and enjoy spending their weekends together doing sports activities they love.
