A self-proclaimed bicycle geek, on his sabbatical several years ago, Steve and his wife, Jen, went on a six-month bike tour through South America and Mexico. Both are delighted to be in Key West and look forward to further adventures!

Director of Music, Organist
After receiving his Bachelor of Music degree in voice performance and education from the University of New York at Fredonia, he graduated from Syracuse University with a Master of Music degree in Piano Performance with a concentration in accompaniment.
He has been a church musician for over 40 years and has served in various denominations, including Presbyterian, Episcopal, Methodist, United Church of Christ, and the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America.
Tim moved to Key West in August 2015 and was appointed the Director of Music at St Paul’s in December of 2016.
Jackie is originally from Niagara Falls, New York, and has lived in the Keys for seven years. She has been facilities Manager/sexton at St. Paul’s 2013.
She calls herself a handy-woman by trade—our retired rector Fr. Hooper called her the “gold standard for sextons!”
She graduated valedictorian in high school as one of the first females to graduate from the carpentry program in 1988 and earned a construction degree from Alfred State College in 1992.
The beauty of the buildings and grounds is in large part due to Jackie’s wealth of talents and pride in her work.
Jackie’s motto is "Make it work, but make it right, and together, everyone achieves more."
