Jack Te ( Instructors Team )
PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor - Scuba Diving since 2019
I was born and raised in Daytona Beach and I am recently retired from the US Army. I learned to dive while on a work trip to Palau and knew from that first breath underwater that this is what I wanted to do when I retired. In the Army I always enjoyed teaching, coaching, and mentoring my Soldiers and watching them get excited when they learned a new skill or learned a new concept - watching them grow. I knew I would find that same joy teaching people how to dive. Once I retired from the Army, I moved to Key Largo and completed the IDC here at Rainbow Reef and I am excited to be working at Rainbow Reef as an instructor .
