Hi I'm Jean-Marc

I was born in Pittsburgh, PA. I'm a husband and father. I speak Finnish. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married to a wonderful woman and have four wonderful children. I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and moved to Ohio, Oregon and then finally to Arizona where I've lived since I was 10 years old. In my first year of college, I met my wife and married her a few years later. I work at a large financial services company and am currently working as a vice president of human resources.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because after studying the gospel, applying gospel principles in my life, and seeking to know if it was true, I received an answer to my prayers that it is true. I have been fortunate to feel and recognize the Spirit of God testify of its truthfulness. I grew up in a home where I had the opportunity to learn about the gospel, attend church, and fellowship with other members of the church. As I grew older I had experiences that helped me develop my own testimony and faith. I have seen the principle of the gospel change the lives of those that are close to me, and I have felt the power of the Savior's atonement in my life.

How I live my faith

I think that we demonstrate our faith by the way we live every day. I strive to follow gospel principles whether at home, at work, or whever I am. My faith reminds me to act with integrity, charity, forgiveness, love, and a commitment to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have ample opportunities to live my faith through service. I have received countless blessings in my life through serving and helping others. I have opportunities to work with the youth who are trying to make choices that will bring them happiness in a challenging world and to work with parents who want the best for their families.
