More About Jerred!

Born in Alaska and raised in Leachville, Arkansas, I have chosen Memphis not only to be my home, but my passion!

When I was in high school, I went to work at McDonald’s to save for a car. It was there that I quickly learned the power of hard work. After six months, I was promoted to manager, which opened so many further opportunities for me. Some years later, I started a career in insurance, which is the industry I currently work and thrive in. I believe that, in order to be a leader, I must listen and work with others from all positions, not just those at the top.

Memphis City Council District 7 is uniquely diverse and hosts some of the most iconic landmarks in the United States. Despite that, I believe District 7 has been allowed to fall behind in many ways, especially by the current representation. This is why I am committed to running.

I am active in the community. I joined the Victorian Village CDC as a board member, was elected treasurer, and then president for two terms. Currently I serve on the Downtown Neighborhood Association and was appointed by Mayor Strickland to serve as a commissioner for Memphis City Beautiful, the nation’s oldest such committee. I also work closely with the Memphis Medical District Collaborative on projects and goals to help make our city a better place. I also hold numerous fundraisers each year at my home to benefit Friends For Life, Mystic Krewe of Pegasus, Elton John AIDS Foundation, and many others.

My goal for being District 7’s representative on the Memphis City Council is to be an advocate for the people in our district. I feel that our voice, values, and interests have not been represented well. I am someone who is caring and will listen to the constituents of District 7. My posts on Facebook and anyone who knows me give testimony to my love for this city, and I am excited to expand that to meeting the amazing people of our district as we get on the campaign trail. I am constantly reading, researching, sharing, and talking about all city developments, challenges, and opportunities. I love to share the positive things that are happening in our city, especially with people from out of town.

Our campaign is one for the people, and I am so excited to meet you on the campaign trail!
