Wired for Security
Building technology is in Jarod’s blood. With his father in the telecom business, Jarod learned to pull and terminate cable as a teenager. He worked various trades in construction, learning a multitude of skillsets. With security cameras, he found his true interest and never looked back. Jarod’s passion for working in the security industry is a strong motivator. He enjoys the opportunity to make an impact in the local community and in the industry.
The first time his neighbors saw the new guy on the block shooting arrows across the street into his garage, Jarod was pleased to meet a police officer and neighborhood watch captain. He is a fairly good amateur archer, having developed the skill during years teaching scouts. Nowadays he has more than a dozen bows, and you will still find him and his kids shooting arrows across the street, joined by 10 to 12 neighborhood kids and their parents. Neighborhood watch reports of suspicious persons are way down!
Whether it’s a small creek or a backwoods lake, trout beware! Backpacking into remote campsites with light supplies and a fishing pole is Jarod’s ideal outing. For 15 years, he’s volunteered with the Boy Scouts, leading kids between ages 12 to 18 on backwoods adventures. Jarod enjoys passing along his fishing skills and helping kids build their confidence. He teaches not only outdoor skills but life skills such as cooking and citizenship in the community.
Pass the Chef’s Hat
Jarod has a loyal following for his carne asada. He first made it as part of a Boy Scout fundraiser, when the group set up a taco stand at a high school track meet. A short time later, after a bbq for friends, it was nicknamed “Carne Asada el Pelon” and became a staple. At least once a month, Jarod and his wife have friends and neighbors over, and he always enjoys doing the cooking. He’ll cook anything you can throw on a grill and is even pretty good at vegetarian and vegan dishes.
