Kelly was raised in the small south Georgia town of Thomasville. During undergrad at the University of Georgia, Kelly met his wife, Caroline, and both of them were heavily involved at RUF and Redeemer PCA. Upon graduation in 2011, Kelly and Caroline got married and served as RUF interns at Mississippi State University for two years. In 2013, the Jacksons moved to Jackson, MS, where Kelly continued working with college students at First Presbyterian Church while attending Reformed Theological Seminary for his MDiv. Kelly and Caroline have two children, Nora and Johnny, and they are extremely grateful for the opportunity to love and serve college students in Tallahassee!
Victoria was born and raised in Northern California and attended UC Berkeley. Through the ministry of RUF at Berkeley, Victoria heard the gospel for the first time and came to know Jesus. After moving to Tallahassee, Florida to work for RUF at FSU, she met her husband, good ol' Florida boy Vaughn, proving the power of the gospel to overcome all sorts of differences. In Summer of 2021, she began working as Campus Staff and loves calling Tallahassee home. Victoria loves a good dance floor, baking bread and ridiculous reality TV.
Andrew mainly grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee. He went to school at the University of Alabama where he received a bachelor's and master's degree in Computer Science. In his free time, Andrew loves sports, movies, and reading science fiction and fantasy novels. Throughout college, RUF was one of his favorite experiences and it had a significant impact on his life. The community and friends he made there created an environment that encouraged him to grow in faith and love for the Lord. Andrew is excited to work as an RUF Intern at Florida State University where he hopes to help provide a similar environment for students.
Rachel is from Sumter SC and graduated from Anderson University with a degree in Elementary Education. Rachel loves connecting with people and helping others grow. During her undergrad years, RUF helped Rachel grow deeper in her relationship with the Lord and showed her what is means to live in a true gospel-centered community. In her free time, you can find Rachel exploring new places with friends, hiking, photographing weddings and families, and sitting outside with a good book in hand. One day (maybe in retirement) Rachel dreams of becoming a National Park Ranger. She is so excited about moving to the sunshine state to serve with RUF at Florida State University!
