When Boca Regional asked him to be their dancer this year, he was compelled to immediately say yes to making a difference in people’s life. The George Snow Scholarship Fund is important to Jody as education, and support like what is provided through the organization, had a profound impact on him.  He wanted to do his part in providing the opportunity to other deserving, hard-working, talented individuals.

Formerly from Minneapolis, MN, Jody has lived in Fort Lauderdale the last 5 years and enjoys the diversity of South Florida living and experiences. And, he can often be found doing his favorite  thing – walking a 10-mile stretch along the beach most weekends.

Ahh … he can dance!
