Q: What inspired you or led you to your current career?
A: “To have a better future for ourselves and our children and have flexible time to spend with them. ”
Q: Who is the most interesting person you’ve met here in Habersham County?
A: “My dad. While I may be partial to this man as a “daddy’s girl”, he holds the title of “Most Interesting Person” in my life for many reasons. He’s a Navy Veteran, retired Firefighter for the City of Atlanta, and business owner here in Clarkesville. But what makes this man truly interesting is his life well-lived. I’ve been scuba diving once in my life, and it was with him. He has been to the depths of every lake in the area, and has searched for the old town of Burton, only to find the tops of chimneys from years passed. He taught my brother and I a love of watersports, and to this day is the best slalom skier I’ve ever met. We spent many weekends “chasing” him down rivers, to hand out lunch as he hurried down rushing waters during canoe races. We walked many miles cave exploring, hiking mountains, and exploring backwoods while metal detecting. I learned to pan for gold at a young age, only to enjoy finding rocks because of him. I spent many Saturdays at tracks cheering on my go-kart racing daddy. He has built motorcycles that have traveled for hundreds of miles; repelled off of the highest skyscrapers in Atlanta; hung out with some seriously famous faces, and made the interior of their boats look like a million dollars. He’s a coin collector, big buck killer…
He is also an amazing piano and organ player, who had a band in high school, and played organ for his church as a teenager (and once filled in for the key board player for John King back in the day).
And most interesting; he was the face of Quaker State in the 80’s, as was seen on many billboards over Atlanta.
Jerry Taylor, owner of JT Marine Upholstery in Clarkesville… This is the most interesting person I’ve met here in Habersham County.
