The JDog values of Respect, Integrity and Trust personify owner Rob Dennis. As teacher and coach for the last 18 years, he lives by these values daily and works tirelessly to instill them in both his students and athletes. When he was introduced to the idea of becoming a JDog Franchisee and providing meaningful employment to fellow Veterans, Rob jumped at the chance!
Rob, originally from Rhode Island, enlisted in the Army National Guard during his college years and served 8 years as a Heavy Diesel Mechanic. After graduating from college, Rob began his career as a Health and Physical Education Teacher. Shortly after his first teaching position in the Washington, D.C area Rob met his wife Lori, also a Health and PE Teacher. They moved to the Philadelphia Area in 2001 to continue their careers and be closer to family. They have been blessed with 3 children, Brady (12), Rylee (8) and Reid (7) and many close friends, who will serve as their support system through the JDog ownership journey.
With Rob and the JDog values on each job, you can expect a timely response with honest pricing and impeccable, quality service. He looks forward to serving you and the surrounding communities!
Michael D. Haire was born in Alexandria, Virginia and joined the Navy at 17 upon graduating from Lake Braddock Secondary School. He became an Ocean Systems Technician Analyst (fancy term for submarine hunter) and his job was mixed with Sonar Technician in 1997 where he became a Sonar Technician Surface (STG). Michael had the honor of serving for over 22 years and traveling the world. He has lived in Guam, Japan, England and Italy. He retired in 2011 as a Chief Petty Officer (E-7) and started working on his Master’s degree in Christian leadership. He finished his Master’s degree in two years and started working on his Doctorate in leadership (ongoing).
Michael realized that all of the leadership was great but it yielded nothing in corporate America. He loves to be active and help others which is why JDog is such a good fit. Additionally, Michael loves that he can repurpose the “junk” he picks up in order to help others (giving to shelters and churches) and feels this is a win for everyone. Michael was honored to serve his country and is eager to begin a new chapter of work within his community where he can continue to help others and train his three kids (24, 15, and 8) on the business and how to support your community. His 24-year-old son, Corey, is assisting Michael and together they are the JDog St. Augustine team.
Thank you for taking the time to read and learn a little about me and the JDog St. Augustine team. We look forward to serving YOU!!!
