My name is Jeff Howell and I am a Florida native, originally from the Orlando area but relocated to beautiful Sarasota. I have 17+ years in the furniture business which includes retail and wholesale sales as well as store management. I met my wife Denise in 2004 when my company transferred me to manage a store in Sarasota. We dated for a few years and both of us knew that marriage was our next step. We had a beautiful wedding in January of 2009 followed by the birth of our son Ryland in March 2010. Our family was now complete! After years of working a full time job that took me away more than 50+ hours a week all of a sudden came to an abrupt hault. On September 5th, 2013 my world was turned upside down when my wife was diagnosed with brain cancer. In that moment I knew that being there for Denise and Ryland was my #1 priority! I needed to be there to not only care of her, but to love and support them both through this life changing diagnosis. Fast forward to July 2017 where Denise is still doing great however we both felt we were at a crossroads in our life. After a little soul searching and a lot of discussion on what our next venture should be we came across Mattress By Appointment. I always dreamed of owning my own business and now it is finally coming in to fruition. The best part is being able to have the flexibility in my schedule where I am able to spend time with the 2 most important people in my life! My family and I are so excited, and extremely blessed, to start this new journey and we can't wait to see what the future holds!
