Jeff McSweeney – I grew up in Washington, Illinois, graduated from Eureka College in 1987 and the Savannah College of Art & Design in 1991. God has blessed me with my wife Mary since 1990 with whom we have two children, Cameron & Quincy. I have extensive creative, marketing and development experience in a variety of industries. God’s hand is quite evident in my landing at South Side Mission. I am thrilled with the opportunity to serve.
