Hello, my name is Jared Reichel and I am super excited to be one of the 2023 Dancing with Missouri Stars celebrities.
As a combat disabled Veteran and retired Sergeant of the United States Army, I have dedicated my life back to servant leadership. Most of my philanthropy has been focused on military Veteran world but I am excited to step out of the norm and contribute to an amazing cause such as the Mareck Center for Dance! As a Columbia native and graduate of Columbia College, I feel a strong connection to this community and have spent so much time giving back to local community. As the remaining founder of Home Runs for Heroes and active Board member of the Vet Center as well as the Columbia College Alumni Association Advisory Council, I spend most of my free time finding ways to impact our community in a positive way. So, given the opportunity to dance and raise money for ana amazing local cause, I had to jump on it! I have been with the Veterans United Family for eleven years in different roles but always with a focus on helping Veterans across the Nation. I am married to my best friend and we have two little daughters that can’t wait to see Dad shake his tail feather! I want to thank Mareck Center for Dance and the community for this opportunity, I won’t let you down! Thank you!
