Born and raised in Winfield, West Virginia, Jess Kuhl is a committed advocate for helping men find meaning and purpose in all aspects of their lives. For nearly 15 years, Jess has bridged two great passions—athletics and faith—in the service of others. From 1996 to 2001, Jess served as an Area Representative for Fellowship of Christian Athletes in Casper, Wyoming, and later as FCA State Director in West Virginia. Jess continues to maintain close ties to the organization through participation on its state board of directors and through the establishment of the Maura Rae Kuhl scholarship, which helps students across West Virginia attend FCA camp.
Jess holds a bachelor’s degree in business from University of Charleston, and currently serves as an Account Manager and Field Sales Trainer with Johnson & Johnson. Consistently ranked by his company as a top performing medical sales representative, Jess routinely coaches industry colleagues on achieving sales goals. A frequent speaker at Rotary clubs, community organizations, and weekend retreats, Jess also speaks on a variety of topics, including the role of discipline in athletics and faith, men and grieving, and the importance of accountability groups and church participation in men’s lives.
A committed Christian, Jess attends Crossroads Community Chapel, where he teaches Sunday school. Jess is also chairman of his church board and leads a weekly adult bible study.
Jess resides in West Virginia
with his wife, Mary, and their two sons, Jak and Caleb.
