About Me

I was born and raised in the Twin Cities, the second oldest of four siblings. I played every sport under the sun growing up, but really excelled in wrestling when I got into high school. After high school, I was presented with an opportunity to help open and operate a Jimmy John’s franchise down in Houston, TX. After a couple years I moved back to MN temporarily, or it would have been temporary, until I met my amazing wife Alisha one fateful night after a friend locked his keys in his car! Luckily, against her better judgement, she called AAA for us, and the rest is history! I stayed in Minnesota, we got married in December of 2016, a beautiful winter wedding in downtown Saint Paul. I received another opportunity for Jimmy John’s out in Boston shortly after that and we moved to the East Coast for two years. We loved our time spent out there, but ultimately decided to move back after learning we were going to have our first child! Avery James Benton was born a little early, due to her being so excited to meet us! She was very healthy and born January 25th of 2018. I came to CertaPro in the beginning of 2018, and am extremely excited for this great opportunity!
