After selling over 1.5 million albums and playing over 1500 concerts in 49 states with his former band Big Daddy Weave, Jeff Jones began to see a common desire among the students he encountered along the way. As they interacted he began connecting the dots to develop the message he shares today. As a youth speaker, Jeff gets to share the principles he’s learned and developed through life lessons over the years with students everywhere. Jeff’s mission is to teach others to live the life they were created to live.
He shares with students his incredible journey, facing massive distractions that almost kept him from following his dreams. From being the picked-on, short and skinny guy on the drum-line to becoming the first person to ever earn the position of 1st chair in the Alabama All-State Band all four years of high school, Jeff knows what it’s like to stay committed to a dream and see it become a reality.
Jeff reveals the secret to success is making W.I.S.E. decisions. He created the acronym W.I.S.E. to remind students it’s “What I Sacrifice Everyday” that will make their dreams a reality.
