Jeff was born in Lynnwood, CA, in 1965. His family moved to the mountains of Idaho when he was a young boy, and he worked on the farm during the summers. His father, William Silvers, was a general contractor, and when the family moved to Tennessee Jeff started working in the construction industry.
In 1981 they moved to the Alabama Gulf Coast. The family’s business was building homes and commercial projects. Jeff worked after school and on the weekends throughout high school, and learned the business from his father. He graduated from Foley High School in 1984 and immediately went to work in construction.
Jeff started working in the fall of 1985 for Gulf Shores Builders Supply. He was the Operations Manager and learned all aspects of the building supply industry. He worked in the yard, ran the yard, purchased materials, did estimates, and worked in sales. When the owner retired, Jeff became the General Manager for the last 5 years he worked there. Jeff spent 18 1/2 years with GSBS.
On March 29, 2004, Jeff came to work at Swift Supply, Orange Beach, as the Sales Manager, and has just celebrated his 12-year anniversary.
Jeff has lived in Orange Beach for 35 years, and is married to Rae Ann. She is a C.P.A. He also has two sons, Brandon and Chase. Brandon, 22, is attending Troy University, and is the starting quarterback on the football team entering his junior year. Chase, 15, loves sports and the outdoors. He would live at the hunting camp Jeff is a member of in Range, AL year-round if his mother would let him.
