Jeff Moffitt

In seventh grade, Creative Accounts Manager, Jeff Moffitt began his yearbook journey. Since then, he has shared his design, writing, photography, and marketing skills with yearbook staffs around the globe, teaching at local, state, national and international conventions and workshops and meeting with staffs one-on-one.

“While many things have changed about how yearbooks are produced, there is one constant that remains: storytelling through words and pictures. Working with staffs to develop their story and create the best yearbook their school has ever seen is beyond rewarding. Seeing a student’s face light up when an idea is pushed further and getting positive feedback when the book is delivered is like nothing else. This is not just a job, it is my passion,” Moffitt said.

Moffitt, MJE, is a Jostens Creative Account Manager. He advised the award-winning Torch yearbook and Oracle newspaper at Olympia High School in Orlando, FL for 11 years. He is a National Board Certified teacher in career and technical education. Moffitt was OHS’s 2007 Teacher of the Year. JEA named him a Special Recognition Yearbook Adviser in 2010 and a Rising Star in 2006.
