Jaxon discovered PPAS on an episode of Pool Kings and was intrigued by the organization and how it operated. When Jaxon met the PPAS team, he felt that they treated him like family, and their support and guidance was unmatched. He has dreamt of owning his own business for years and being a part of the PPAS team has made his dreams come true. He is excited about the opportunity to meet customers and individuals in the Tulsa area. He hopes to create relationships that last a lifetime and create a positive impact on his community.
