Jared Smith

I’ve lived in the Western New York area my whole life and reside outside of Buffalo, NY in rural area of Pembroke. My primary focus in life is my family, and I prioritize spending quality time together as often as possible. My wife, Stephanie, and I have known each other since high school, and were married in 2012. We became proud parents to our daughter, Jordyn, in 2017. Our lives are focused on experiencing life with Jordyn as she grows. We love to travel, spend time outdoors whenever possible, and enjoy all that the Western New York area has to offer.

My passions outside of work are centered around enjoying the perks of living in a quiet rural area, such as vegetable gardening, homebrewing craft beer, grilling and smoking great food, and hosting gatherings for our family and friends. Much of my personal time is focused on enjoying life with those close to me. I am very blessed to have wonderful family and friends, as well as a career, that I love.
