Jared Jolley grew up in Elyria, Ohio, and attended Open Door Christian School for the majority of his youth. After taking a variety of art courses at community college, Jared ultimately decided to pursue his love of music. Having traveled extensively with a band, God introduced Jared to his wife, Cristina, at a concert in Atlanta, Georgia. They married in 2008 and have two sons, Lukas, 9, and Jake, 7. Just this past year, they moved from Lakewood to Strongsville. Jared previously led worship at Cross Point Church for the last few years and works full time at his family’s mechanical business, E.M.
