Jesse (Memfis Mafia)
My real name is Jesse but I seem to be known by more people as Memfis. I am the patriarch of Memfis Mafia and some would say master mind (but not the boss) of the family. I am way too wise to live in a house full of women and think I am in charge. I am always looking to push the envelope and never back down from a new experience. I love geocaching and always try to elevate the game from a simple scavenger hunt to an unbelievable adventure with every find I make. The only thing I love more than adventure is geocaching with my awesome wife and two wonderful daughters. OCQHJB
For some insight into how I think or maybe more accurately my perspective on this great game of ours, here is a recent pic of where geocaching can take you. I guess this wouldn’t be called going to new heights. Maybe going to new lows? Either way it made for a fun photo op. This type of caching, leaving the beaten path, is my favorite. We have all been asked what is our favorite style of geocaching. For me, it is the one that takes a lot of planning, maybe requires a little bit of travel, and if I’m lucky pushes me slightly outside of my comfort zone.
The Memfis Mafia is always looking to inspire and give back to the game of geocaching. Our most recent contribution to that goal has come in the form of our first best selling book, Geocaching Challenges: The Game Within the Game. This book was truly a collaboration between Memfis and his wife, the CFO. The book is of course about the ins and outs of Challenge caches, but it also includes tips and tricks as well as personal stories to which geocachers of all levels can relate. It is currently available as a print book and in a digital version as well. The experience was so rewarding and the feedback has been so overwhelmingly positive that the Mafia has started working on their next project.
