Today and every day, our team is thankful.
Some of our team members at PeerSource shared what they are most grateful for this season.
“I am thankful to have grown up and live in a country that has so many freedoms, including the ability to freely express my religious views. I am thankful for my family and for the gift of growing up in a stable, loving home where both parents provided good leadership and taught me to work with your siblings. I am thankful to work for a company that values your contributions and respects you as an employee and an individual.” —Kevin Jerome, Business Development Manager
“I am thankful for family, good health, and good friends. I am blessed with my husband and children and opportunities to enjoy my time on the weekends. I am thankful for laughter, sunshine, and love.” —Erika Eiland, Technology Recruiter
“This year, I am thankful for my amazingly thoughtful husband and our two beautiful boys. My new (but old) career path and the incredibly talented people I work with. The village around me that not only helps to raise my children, but guides them as well. I am grateful to live in such a beautiful neighborhood where I can consider our friends our family. Most importantly, today I am aware that my life is so much better than I deserve. The world is full of so much hardship, pain, suffering and regret; the fact that I can be thankful and mean it is a small miracle. I am blessed to bless and gifted to give and thankful to be able to do meaningful things in life with a support system that will never let me down.” —Jessica Oliver, Technology Recruiter
“I feel thankful every day for my life and good health. I’m thankful for the people who surround me and make me feel so loved and unique. I’m also always thankful for the roof over my head and a warm home to go to every night with someone I love. I appreciate all the little things that make life meaningful.” —Abbey Overlee, Technology Recruiter
“I am thankful for the life that I have been blessed to be able to build for myself, and that I get to wake up every day and live it — especially with things happening like the recent fires in California and the hurricane that hit Panama a few weeks back, or the one that hit there in the Carolinas. I am thankful for my lovely wife; it is my second marriage, and prior to meeting her I had no idea what the word marriage really truly meant. She is my everything, my best friend, my confidant, my advisor and even a mentor as the strong professional that she is in the financial services arena.” —Jonathan Morgan, Business Development Manager
“I am thankful for the opportunity that we all have as Americans to grow and prosper and worship as we see fit. I’m thankful for the sacrifice of so many brave men and women who have given the rest of us our freedom. I’m thankful for our teams within my companies, as I have never had a better group of people with fantastic attitudes. I truly feel like the sky is the limit.” —John Snellings, CEO

Kevin Jerome has been in the passenger seat of a race car going around Daytona International Speedway at 190 mph.
In his day-to-day life, it seems like Jerome is moving at nearly that speed. He is busy spurring business growth, building connections and helping the people around him achieve their maximum potential.
Early on in his career, Jerome was a sponsorship consultant for a NASCAR race team where he worked to develop marketing programs.
“We worked with them [Haas CNC Racing] through the merger with Tony Stewart, to what is known today as Stewart-Haas Racing,” he said.
Jerome shared his hometown — Golden, Colorado — with Coors Brewery and the Colorado School of Mines. It was in that small town that he first developed a love for sports, a passion that he would carry on throughout the rest of his life. Name the sport and Jerome probably played it; his name could be found on the football, basketball, ice hockey and baseball team rosters.
“I do enjoy sports and have had many opportunities throughout my career and life to interact with many sports figures and participate in some very amazing sporting events,” he shared.
Later on in his career, Jerome acted as the director of marketing and sponsorship sales at Furniture Row Racing.
While there, he increased brand exposure from $16 million to over $28 million in one year.
“Each day is a new beginning with the new potential to make a difference,” Jerome said.
Today, he focuses his efforts on making a difference at PeerSource as a business development manager.
Whether it is a sports-focused venture or an IT recruiting company, Jerome’s mission is the same: he wants to help both businesses and people succeed.
Although Jerome has worked for many notable companies and experienced great professional success, that is not how he measures his life impact.
When asked how he ultimately wants to be remembered, Jerome said: “As someone who was loyal and who enjoyed life and people.”
So, that is what keeps Jerome going — a yearning for a life well lived.
That has taken him on world travels to Italy, on adventures to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway and on memorable fly fishing trips.
But, there is still more to do.
What are three things that can be found on his bucket list at this very moment?
At the end of the day, it is 2 Timothy 4:10 that Jerome wants to be able to say: “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.”
