My name is Justin Mikesell, but most of my friends and family call me Jay. I wanted to introduce myself, tell you about some of my interests and share why I am serving a mission for my church. I am 20 years old, and I was born and raised in Las Vegas, Nevada USA. I am the oldest of five kids and have three brothers and a sister.
This family picture was taken on April 1, 2013, the day I was set-apart as a missionary. Left is my sister Kayla (13), me, my dad Sean, my step-mom Kelly, my brothers Alec (17), Chase (16) and Brandon (11).
I graduated from Cheyenne High School in 2010. While I was in high school, I was on the swim team, golf team and soccer team. I started running half marathons when I was 16 years old. Since then, I've ran several half marathons in Las Vegas and Utah, the St. George Marathon in St. George, Utah and a couple Ragnar Relay's. I've always been blessed with great friends, and love to hang out with them. Many of them have served missions or currently are serving and have been great examples to me.
