Jeff Grant & Paige Smart


Born in Orlando, Florida, Jeff Grant moved to Jefferson in 2006 and is currently, president and co-founder of iServe Ministries. Jeff loves to help people and one way he does this is through iServe Ministries, a non-profit organization that provides food for needy families in the Jackson County area. The program gives away around 70,000 pounds of food each month.

Jeff loves sports of all kinds – especially anything played by the Florida Gators! He is married, has three daughters and one granddaughter. But his first love is his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

He is very excited about participating in Dancing with the Stars – Jackson County Style! and trying something he has never done before.
