Where you live and have lived- My father was in the movie business so we moved a lot until Junior HS where I Grew up in Southern California and graduated from Dana Hills HS. Then I moved to Weed, CA to play baseball at Junior College and then came to Milledgeville in 1990 and continued my baseball career. I lived in Brookhaven and then moved to Roswell in 2008, and we have lived here since.

Spouse- Jan Oetinger and we have been married for 26 years and we dated for 5 years before that. Jan and I met at GA College, and she was a gymnast in college, and she is from Clearwater. FL.

Kids and ages- Bailey Hill Oetinger-19 and she is a 2022 graduate from Roswell High School where she lettered in Soccer and Basketball. She is currently at Lipscomb University in Nashville on a Soccer scholarship as a freshman. Jack Pearce Oetinger- 16 and he is currently a sophomore at FCS and is playing Football and Baseball this year. His passion is baseball and he looks forward to playing baseball in college. He plays for the GA jackets 16U team for the summer baseball program.

Other involvement in community- My passion is baseball and try to volunteer as much as I can and another passion is Veterans and how we can impact them to make their lives better.

Career- It’s been all over but mostly I have been a serial entrepreneur and I love to build things and teams and see those relationships grow and prosper.

Anything interesting! I am the youngest of 4 boys and my brothers live in California.

Why you joined Rotary- I joined Rotary because of the mission of service above self and I want to impact more people than just my inner circle. As I have gotten older I have come to understand there is more to helping than just talking and having great ideas. I need to get involved so I can impact people positively and be more aware of peoples needs. God calls us to be givers not takers and we need to teach the generations that follow in that as well.
