Get to know Jeff


I am a life-long resident of Orem. I have grown up under the watchful eye of Mount Timpanogos. I grew up playing on Orem’s baseball diamonds, swimming at the Scera pool, playing on the tennis courts, hiking the trails, cycling the streets and attending the schools of
Orem. I met my beautiful wife Darla here.


We are both Orem Tigers. We both loved Orem so much that we decided that this is where we wanted to raise our family. We have 6 beautiful children, 3 girls and 3 boys. We are also the proud grandparents of 9 grandsons and 3 grand-daughters. I was the President and CEO of a small business right here in Orem. Granite Publishing and Distribution. A company dedicated to producing and distributing products that are positive, uplifting and inspirational. We sold that business a few years ago. But I continue to strive to be positive, uplifting and inspirational.


I currently work for a company in American Fork, Xlear (pronounced Clear) where I oversee the procurement and purchasing department.

Service Matters

I have served in different capacities in the city of Orem. I have volunteered hundreds of
hours as a baseball, soccer and basketball coach. I have served as a leader in the Boy Scouts of America. I have been a leader for many, in non-profit settings, to help them have hope and to stretch for new goals.


I served for several years on the City of Orem Summerfest Committee. Including serving in leadership roles as chairman and vice chair. I also served for several years on the Orem City CARE Commission. There we had the opportunity to meet with and interview the candidates who were seeking to use those dollars to enhance the arts in Orem. We took that responsibility very seriously to make sure those dollars were spent wisely.


I currently serve on the Orem City Council and look forward to continuing that service with honor, integrity and respect for ALL Orem citizens. We live in an amazing city. Clean water, parks, streets, beautiful surroundings, unbelievably happy people. Amazing city staff and employees. Yes we have some challenges, but I know that if we work together we can navigate these challenging waters together. Orem needs responsible individuals on the city council who can work together with other people, without being polarizing. It is ok to disagree, in fact I believe it is healthy to have differing perspectives and points of view. When those points of view and perspectives are brought into the light is when you have synergy to come up with a better solution or option than you had before, when looking at just one point of view. It is so important to be able to agree to disagree without being disagreeable!
