Jeter also was responsible for maintaining relationships with aviation managing general agents. He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Mississippi, majoring in Risk Management & Insurance.
In 2006, Jeter joined the Air National Guard as an Aerospace Maintenance Technician in Mississippi. He spent nine years as a crew member for both the Alabama and Mississippi Air National Guard before being promoted to First Sergeant in the Alabama Air National Guard two years ago.
