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 he helped co-found in 2012, he would run coast to coast beginning in Coos Bay, Oregon. After 100 days, 10 pairs of running shoes, 3,452 miles, and impacting countless lives along the way, Jamie completed his journey in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, becoming the 48th person in history to complete a true Ocean to Ocean run across America.
Jamie currently serves as the CEO of Guidon Creative, an events management and promotion company that provides consulting, management and design for events large and small in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
Jamie resides in Morgantown WV with his wife Tiffany, who are the proud parents of their two children Nicholas & Shayna, and are currently very happy to be empty-nesters.
