Shangri-La Marina Manager Jared Jeffers is a lifelong Grand Laker, the son of well-known homebuilder Boo Jeffers and Becky Huggins, a longtime fixture in Langley city government. He graduated from Ketchum High School before attending both the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University. “After I graduated at OSU, I went directly to work in Tulsa,” Jeffers recalls, “but it wasn’t long before the waters of Grand Lake pulled me back home.” Jared was marina manager at Ugly John’s Thunder Bay Marina prior to
joining Shangri-La marina as Customer Service Specialist.
“My job is to ensure that the only part of the boating lifestyle our customers are exposed to and engaged in is the fun part,” Jared said. “I want our crew at Shangri-La Marina to make sure boating on Grand Lake is easy and fun for our customers. We’ll handle all the details to make sure that happens.”
Jared and his wife, Kasidy, live on South Grand Lake with their two sons, Jensen and Micah.
