Jeff Fox joined the US Marine Corps immediately after high school. He served with the 3rd BN, 6th Regiment at Camp Lejeune, NC as a member of a rifle company, and then with the Surveillance and Target Acquisition (STA) Platoon where he learned the art and science of military long-range shooting. He deployed to Mogadishu Somalia with STA as part of the 24th MEU (SOC) and also spent time in Cuba, Okinawa and Korea. After the Marine Corps, Jeff joined the Ohio Army National Guard as a tanker. He now works as a physicist for a government agency and his love of the science of long-range shooting has only intensified in recent years. Jeff enjoys investigating the art and science of precision shooting and applying those principals to competition at the highest level as a member of the Precision Rifle Series (PRS). Jeff founded JADE Precision, LLC. in order to advance the sport through research, development and competition and by helping manufacturers improve and create equipment for precision rifle enthusiasts.
"As I get older, and have developed tinnitus, I realize the importance of quality hearing protection. Precision shooting requires that a shooter find the proper body and head position with the rifle, each and every time. Traditional over-the-ear hearing protection can and will cause the shooter to place their head out of position in rapid engagement situations, and potentially miss the target. Thankfully, I recently discovered Etymotic EB-15 LE electronic earplugs. They allow me to hear the Range Safety Officer's normal speech and they then offer instant noise suppression during firing by others and myself on the line. If only I'd had the EB-15's all those years ago, I might not have incessant ringing in my ears."
Patrick Stiffler is a Food Safety Coordinator for a food manufacturing company in Springfield Ohio. He studied culinary arts and apprenticed to become a chef before joining The Ohio Army National Guard. Through the GI Bill, Patrick received a degree in agricultural engineering and business. After a 16-year career as an Armor crewman on an M1A1 Abrams main battle tank, Patrick was given a full medical retirement for injuries sustained during an overseas deployment. After retiring from the service, Patrick connected with a former Sniper with whom he had served. This reunion reignited his interest in the shooting sports and he soon formed a partnership with his friend Jeff Fox, owner of JADE Precision, LLC. Patrick now runs the marketing and sponsorship department at JADE.
"In the past while I was on the range, hunting or in a competition I would often not wear hearing protection because of the inability to hear commands from the tower or from the people around me. As I have gotten older and now have significant hearing loss from the exposure to so much [excessive sound] it has become important for me to protect the remaining hearing I have. The EB15's are comfortable and allow me to hear what is going on around me while also offering excellent hearing protection in the field and on the range."
