Jeremy Dowlen-Sexton

As a Chattanooga native. I spent my youth living and working on a small dairy farm in north Hamilton county. I dedicated twenty years of work to the US Postal Service, and am a recent college graduate. I have done service work, maintenance, welding and fabrication, carpentry, blacksmithing, and spent a brief time in the design industry.  I am a musician who plays the mandolin and standup bass, and I recently fell in love with the fiddle. I play in an upstart band called the “GrimmRiffers”. I also enjoy outdoor sports. My new goal is to run ultra marathons in the Paleo running style. I hope to serve God and the Church with dedication using my gift as a “renaissance man” worker.
