Meet the Ninjaneers


Preston Jenkins

Nashville born and raised, Preston Jenkins moved to East Tennessee after grabbing his BS in Civil Engineering from Tennessee Tech. A lover of all things sports, he places basketball, tennis, volleyball, and Alabama football (yeah, we know…), at the top of his list. On exceptionally warm days, you can find him crushing Norris lake with his wakeboard and skis, or, if he’s feeling humble, he’ll just tube or ride a horse.

When Preston taps into his indoor self, you can usually find him watching movies — The Lion King, Hercules and Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 2 are among his favorites. It seems as though the theme of lions continues throughout his life as he’s pretty confident the Sorting Hat would place him in the Gryffindor House because of his self-professed courage, loyalty, nobility and fondness for large jungle cats.
