Family: Wife, Lauren Jefferies and son, Cohen Jefferies Years in the Golden Isles: Born and Raised (32 years) School: Glynn Academy (2006), Valdosta State University (2010) Occupation: Associate broker with Jekyll Realty Who or what inspired you to be become a realtor: My father. C.J. Jefferies, has been a Realtor in the Golden Isles for 30 years. What is a selling point for buying a home in the Golden Isles? It’s a great community with great residents. There are always festivals and events to enjoy with family and friends. It’s the perfect sized community and the perfect location between Savannah and Jacksonville. Favorite landmark in the Golden Isles: Driftwood Beach. There’s no place like it. I’ve been going since I was a kid. It’s always the same, but always changing from storms and tides. A local you admire: Butch Bishop of Maxwell’s General Store on Jekyll. He is one of the hardest workers I know, while being one of the most generous. He is in various community organizations with multiple businesses and always has a smile on his face. The kind of guy that would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Local cause you like to support: The AJ Donohue Foundation. It’s a foundation supporting institutions that provide care to victims of pediatric cancer and families of children afflicted with pediatric cancer. AJ was my best friend and was diagnosed with cancer while we were in high school. Unfortunately AJ is no longer with us, but his legacy of helping others lives on. The foundation also provides local scholarships for those providing care or aspiring to provide care to the victims of pediatric cancer. Describe a perfect Saturday for you in the Golden Isles: The perfect Saturday is spent with friends and family. I like to go to our neighborhood pool and watch my son learn to swim, fish the pond for some large mouth bass, and grill dinner on the Big Green Egg.
