Stephen and Jodi met at SCCS in high school. Stephen was a SCCS “lifer” and Jodi (Brown) attended SCCS beginning in junior high.
After graduating from SCCS, Stephen attended Vanguard University in Costa Mesa and played baseball. His dream to be a fireman led him to complete training at College of the Canyons and LA Valley College where he learned how to be a wildland firefighter and began working for the National Forest. Shortly after, Stephen was hired by the Los Angeles City Fire department where he has been a firefighter for nine years. Stephen has worked most of his career in South Central LA. Recently Stephen was promoted to Apparatus Operator, where he drives and leads his crew on the Aerial ladder truck. Currently he is stationed in The city of Tarzana at Station 93.
Upon graduation from SCCS, Jodi attended The Master’s University, majoring in pre-medicine, and playing soccer. “I was accepted to Loma Linda school of nursing where I graduated with my Bachelor’s degree in Nursing Science in 2010,” said Jodi. “Today, I am blessed to be a Registered Nurse at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles with the Emergency Transport team.”
Stephen and Jodi just celebrated three years of marriage together and they live in Ventura, California at Channel Islands Harbor. “We have been so blessed by our church Reality, Ventura and have seen the Lord grow us in so many ways,” said Jodi.
“I’ll forever be grateful for my time at SCCS. It is here that I found my soul mate and created life-long friendships that are still a big part of who I am today. The close-knit family of SCCS brought us together and ultimately prepared us for our life and careers, as well as academically, professionally and most importantly spiritually,” said Jodi.
