Jimmy was raised in the Methodist Church in Bowling Green, MO. In junior high he began exploring his faith and converted to Catholicism. After graduating from Southeast Missouri State University, Jimmy moved to St. Louis, where he is a general contractor and owner of a masonry company. Jimmy found his way to St. Peter's and the Episcopal Church in 2011 by way of his fiancée, choir member Amanda Meinen.

He is a lay reader, participates in Friday morning bible study, and is regular participant in the monthly men's breakfast. He follows his mother's advice, who says, "We're all trying to get to the same place, we're just taking different highways." He is happy to be traveling this highway with you.

Claire practiced law for several years and is currently working at Washington University School of Law in the Office of Admissions and the Center for Career Development.
