On March 26, 2012, Jamie Summerlin, a US Marine Corps veteran, started an improbable cross-country journey. In order to honor our Military Veterans, and raise funds for West Virginia-based Operation Welcome Home, a veteran’s facility “For Veterans, By Veterans”, he would run coast to coast beginning in Coos Bay, Oregon. After 100 days, 10 pairs of running shoes, and 3,452 miles, Jamie completed his journey in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, becoming one of the few individuals in history to complete a true Ocean to Ocean run across America.
Jamie resides in Morgantown WV with his wife Tiffany, and two children Nicholas & Shayna. He currently serves as the President of the Board of Directors for Operation Welcome Home.
