We are tickled to be able to announce Jared Evans joined the Baxter Restoration family late 2016 as an Estimator. This guy is full of surprises! For one thing he is something of a rarity... He was born and raised in Sanford, Florida! Yes! A true Florida Native! Almost like a rare bird... treat him nicely or he might flutter off! To make the story even sweeter, Jared's whole family lives within 20 minutes of each other, and in authentic southern style, they have Sunday family day every week! Upwards of 8 kids and all of their adults are there, he says "it's like a family reunion, every week!"
His strong family ties might just be the secret to his success as apart of the Baxter Team... having grown up with 3 sisters, Jared has been well prepared for working in an office of almost all women, and we are grateful for it!
Jared started his professional career after attending Seminole State College, as an insurance adjustor. After 5 years in the biz he noticed that everyone around him struggled to maintain a healthy work/life balance. Just before his first son was born, he changed careers to roofing sales and interior remodeling. All of that varied experience prepared him for the opportunity to become a full time estimator. He claims that all of it was necessary for him to really excel at what he does now. "if you understand the different parts of building and maintaining a house, it helps to be able to accurately estimate what it takes to put a one back together after a disaster." Lucky for us, Jared loves writing estimates! He says it is challenging and he enjoys constantly learning about the different programs and requirements for insurance approvals.
Here's a fun fact: Jared is the worship leader at his church! Yup! He handles the music the department including song writing and performing! He says he gave up basketball for piano and is completely self taught! Then his wife suggested that he had a pretty good singing voice, and well... the rest as they say is history!
Married now for 9 years to his wife Hope - together they have two sons Mark (5) and Cole (1). Besides spending time with them and enjoying Disney again, through their eyes, Jared also is super supportive of his wife's endeavors. She is co-founder of the Lovely Project http://thelovelyproject.org a non-profit organization that seeks to empower young girls.
Needless to say, Jared is a perfect fit to our Bax Res office staff and we are grateful he chooses to share some of his many talents with us!
