Jeff Clarkson

Founder, Safety Manager
“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”  

– Walt Disney

Jeff grew up in the small town of White Heath, Illinois. He played just about any sport you could think of: baseball, basketball, soccer, football, golf, and wrestling! Keeping people safe runs in the family for Jeff, whose dad was a firefighter. Growing up, Jeff wanted to do the same, and so he did.  

After graduating from Illinois State’s safety program, Jeff served his community for 23 years as a firefighter and paramedic. He consulted on the side, but in 2020 he partnered with us to create a change in safety culture on a larger scale by establishing ExergyPro. Jeff is a details guy: extremely organized and task oriented. He uses these strengths, combined with years of experience and expertise to help his clients keep the ball rolling and not let anything slip through the cracks.  

When Jeff isn’t trying to keep people safe, he helps his wife Angel wrangle three kids and their dog MoJo. They enjoy golfing, getting outdoors, volunteering and serving the community with their church. And even though he’s all about safety, don’t let anyone tell you there’s not an adventurous side to him: Scuba diving with his daughter is at the top of his bucket list.
