The OFFICIAL SITE to Americas #1 Youth Motivational Speaker!
“Jeff is the best I have ever seen, and I’ve seen hundreds. His style and his message transcend geographic or cultural boundaries and he has an innate ability to touch a young person’s heart and mind like no one I have ever seen. His message is one of celebrating what is truly important in life – family, personal integrity and making right choices.  Why he is so different from other speakers was best captured by one lady who told me, ‘Jeff talked to us, not at us.’” – Karen Musante, President, PFEW
