Jeff comes by his production abilities naturally, having grown up in the business. He was eight years old when his family moved from Missouri to South Carolina to start The Carolina Opry. In those early days he pitched in by carrying ice to concessions stands and props to cast members.
After completing his college degree in Chicago, Illinois, he moved back to Myrtle Beach and joined the family business. He is executive vice president and acts as producer and director under his father as well as taking a seat on the company’s advisory board. He also coaches The Carolina Opry softball team, which participates in the Midnight League in Myrtle Beach, competing with other theaters and attractions.
Jeff and his wife, Carrie, enjoy spending time with their two children and traveling together as a family.
