After serving over eight years across two enlistments in the United States Navy, Jeff decided to return to college and chart a new course to serve his country and defend the Constitution. His involvement with YAL began when he attempted to found a Young Americans for Liberty Chapter at Bunker Hill Community College in Spring of 2017. When college administrators failed to process the student group’s application for official recognition, Jeff took matters into his own hands. Jef recruited a handful of his classmates and began distributing copies of the U.S. Constitution to their fellow students on campus. Within minutes, the Campus Police were alerted and arrived on the scene to demand the unrecognized YAL students stop distributing unapproved materials. Jeff replied “This is the Constitution, it doesn’t need to be approved, it has been ratified!” Campus police were not amused and attempted to explain the Student Code of Conduct. Jeff replied “I think the only permission slip I need is the First Amendment, which I know you and I both swore an Oath to Defend with our lives.” The Campus Police told them to pack it up and reported them for disciplinary action to the Dean of the College. Jeff and his friends found legal assistance with the help of Young Americans for Liberty’s Director of Free Speech (formerly, Alex Staudt) and threatened to sue the school if they did not change their policies. By the Fall Semester, Bunker Hill Community College was fully compliant with the First Amendment, and the entire Massachusetts Community College System soon followed, bringing liberty to hundreds of thousands of students. Jeff went on to get two Associates Degrees in Theatre and History/Government from Bunker Hill, while spending his free time working on pro-liberty campaigns and causes across the country, including serving as Campaign Manager for the Boston Globe Endorsed candidate Daniel Fishman for Auditor of Massachusetts. After graduation, Jeff joined the National Staff in June of 2019 as an intern and was immediately hired as an Associate at the end of the internship. Outside of the office, Jeff loves travelling, running obstacle course races, live music, playing guitar and singing karaoke, but most of all he enjoys standing like a rock in defense of Life, Liberty, the Pursuit of Happiness, and the United States Constitution.
