HI, I’m Jeff Connell, and I appreciate you taking the time to check out my page here on the website. I’m proud to call the Treasure Valley Home having moved here a little over three years ago. I live in Meridian with my 8 year-old son. Life has been an adventure in the last few years I went through a divorce after a 13 year marriage, so I’ve been navigating a life reboot. It’s been a lot of growth, some lessons learned along the way, and some really “unique” dating experiences. I grew up in Seattle, so I still cheer for the Mariners and Seahawks, and my son and I have adopted both the Portland Trailblazers and Utah Jazz for basketball. We’re still holding out hope Boise will get another basketball team to play. In my downtime, I love to travel, grab my camera and take pictures, and do some “adventures” with my kiddo. I made it to Australia last year which was one of those bucket list trips. I’m hoping to add another stamp to the passport sometime soon, and am committed to camping in our amazing Idaho outdoors this summer.
