Jeff was born in Queretaro, Mexico, and began playing tennis at the age of 8, sparking a lifelong passion for the sport. As he competed in tournaments across Mexico, his dream of becoming a professional tennis player took shape. At 16, he embarked on a journey to Argentina to further develop his tennis skills while independently completing his high school education. Later, he relocated to Alicante, Spain, with the same goal of refining his abilities and competing in tournaments, where he earned several ATP points in both singles and doubles competitions.

Upon receiving a full scholarship, Jeff attended Tyler Junior College, where he achieved remarkable success, becoming a national champion over two years. He then transferred to Abilene Christian University, a Division 1 institution, where he not only pursued his degree in liberal studies but also served as assistant coach for the men’s team.

Before joining TIA, Jeff traveled internationally, assisting professional and junior players during summers, while working as an assistant coach for a D1 program in Texas during the academic year. He also gained valuable experience during winter breaks at the Rosewood Resort Las Ventanas el Paraiso in Los Cabos, Mexico. He looks forward to sharing his experience, knowledge, and energy with our TIA community.
