Jeff Brower is a lifelong resident of Volusia County. He was born in Pennsylvania, but his family moved to Daytona Beach when Mr. Brower was 3-years-old. One of his first jobs was as a Volusia County lifeguard beginning in 1970, where he went on to become the first of two lifeguards to earn their EMT certification. Mr. Brower moved to DeLeon Springs in 1980 and married his wife, Terri, in 1985. They are the parents of nine children – four boys and five girls, including two active-duty military.
