He is originally from Lyndon, Ill., a village of just under 600 people located about 45 minutes northeast of the Quad Cities. While he enjoys the small-town life, Jaret is excited to explore Omaha and all it has to offer.
As a major foodie, he cannot wait to start checking out the plethora of great restaurants he has heard about in the city. In his free time, Jaret also enjoys cooking, traveling, listening to all kinds of music and learning about history and cultures.
