Jeep was born in Hartford Connecticut and grew up in Titusville Fl. He graduated in 1984 from Titusville High School where he played catcher on the baseball team and lauded for his excellent abilities on the field. Jeep started teaching at Titusville High School and coaching the varsity baseball team after graduating from UCF in 1992. He excelled at teaching students the importance of achieving their dreams and never underestimating their abilities in the classroom and on the field. Jeep was well loved in Titusville always drawing a crowd of former students and parents no matter where he went. His legacy will remain a foundation at Titusville High cemented with the stories of former players re-counting Coach Jeep arguing with the umpires over a bad call. His conviction to his family, his friends and all of those he touched throughout his years shall remain embedded with those of us who knew and loved him.
