Since Jaspen was a young kid, sports and fitness have always been driving forces in his life. Sports allowed him to participate at the highest level possible of football, wrestling, and track while in high school, garnishing state awards in all three, including a championship in wrestling. Knowing that he did not want to end his career there, he accepted a scholarship to play football at Catawba College. The next 4 years provided him with the chance to win a conference championship and the opportunity to intellectually grow while studying exercise science. After college, he accepted a role as a trainer at a nautilus gym to better equip himself with the environment of individuals who are not as acquainted with exercise and are looking for those who are equipped with academic knowledge and experience that they can relate to. However, he knew this was not his calling. He knew he needed to be involved with something competitive, that he too could also get involved with, and CrossFit has provided that exact opportunity. Being a part of CrossFit not only allows to him quench his competitive thirst, but he is now able to help those who seek the opportunity to positively improve their lifestyle and to coach and train kids and adults alike who seek a competitive edge. For the past 6 years as a coach, Crossfit77 has allowed him to bring out his most inner passion about fitness, which is to have fun, as well as offer any and all guidance that he can to those willing to make themselves better.

Jaspen is a highly competitive sport and game lover (including games such as bowling and monopoly). He loves to cook and eat. He is an avid sports fan, family man, movie fiend, and music listener.
