MJ describes himself as helpful, humble, and hungry. MJ was born and raised in San Antonio. His wife, Laura, is a former figure skater and hockey player from North Carolina. They share their lives with three children and a chocolate Labrador, Gus. Outside of Chesmar, MJ loves building and fixing things. He also enjoys helping others, fishing, hunting, and generally anything outdoors.
A younger MJ wanted to be a veterinarian, a lumberjack, and a pilot. When asked what makes Chesmar special, MJ says it is the “benefactor effect.” From the top down, everyone takes someone under their wing to help you learn, grow, and help others to do the same.
