Jerad grew up in a small town here in Minnesota. New London, MN better known for its other half, Spicer, and the beautiful vacation spot of Green Lake located about 15 minutes North of Willmar. After graduating with a class of about 150 (although New London itself is only about a population of 1,800) Jerad attended Minnesota State University, Mankato where he got his Bachelor of Science degree double majoring in Physical and Health Education. When he’s not teaching skills, concepts and strategies of sport and other health enhancing activities, he is usually participating in them, for his hobbies usually include biking, running and hiking with his wife. Although he also enjoys relaxing hobbies such as playing guitar (amateurly), watching movies and anything where he can be creative.
