Meet the newest addition to our FreshMinistries’ family – Omar Simmons!
Omar became a part of FreshMinistries over a year ago as a Case Manager and mentor of the Fresh Path program, but only recently took on the full-time position as the Fresh Futures’ Program Coordinator.
Prior to FreshMinistries, Omar worked with athletes at Atlantic Coast High School as the Head Coach for Boys Track and Field and even spent several years as a Defensive Secondary Coach. To add to his experience with student-athletes, Omar spent fourteen years recruiting and coaching for a variety of sport programs such as The Florida Falcons, Jax X Men, Jacksonville Knights, and more! Not only does he have experience with youth, Omar spent eighteen years gaining diverse loan experience with the Jacksonville offices of major financial institutions including, but not limited to: LPS/Fidelity National, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and others.
With a vast array of experience, Omar hopes to take his knowledge to not only improve the Fresh Futures program, but the futures of Jacksonville’s youth.
