Jeff Snover, Chairman & Founder
Jeff founded CMFA out of a desire to share the life-enriching benefits of adaptive sports. In addition to volunteering his time as CMFA’s Executive Director, Jeff leads the Cycling program with CMFA Secretary Michael Bishop.
Jeff is retired US Army of 18 1/2 years and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for his service in Iraq. His retirement was due to an injury that left him paralyzed. During his military career he served as a Supply Systems Technician and reached Chief Warrant Officer 3 right before sustaining injury; the Supply Support Activity (SSA) he ran at Fort Bragg won the Forces Command Best Medium SSA. Snover’s last SSA, the 507th Maintenance Company at Fort Bliss was considered best in class by senior logistics personnel from Fort Lee, Virginia. Holds an associate’s degree in technology from Pierce Community College in Washington State.
Jeff’s motto is: “My injury wasn’t a roadblock … just a speedbump.”
