He was an avid hunter and fisherman. He was an exceptional horseback rider and relished pack trips through the beautiful mountains of Utah.

Jed came to Tucson in 1989, to create a family owned business Mayfield Agencies which is now known as Mayfield Financial and Estate Protection Services. For the past seven years he has also been a local radio personality hosting "Worry-Free Financial Radio Show of Tucson." His firm will continue the legacy of trust and confidence Jed devotedly built with his Vice President at the helm.
