Bio:Jimmy did his first Discover Scuba with his dad, Jim Stauff, while visiting Kona in August 2008. The experience was life changing and Jimmy got certified for his 15th birthday later that fall. Originally from California, he did a majority of his diving along Monterey Bay and the Mendocino Coast, with an annual trip to warm tropical waters in the Caribbean and South Pacific. Diving became a passion and Jimmy landed a job with a small dive shop, working his way up from sales associate to store manager and PADI Divemaster. At the same time, he was attending CSUS and earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting May 2017. Four days after finals, he was on a one-way flight to Kona, where he fell in love with diving. Now Jimmy is the accounting manager at Jack’s Diving Locker and is proud to use his degree in an industry he loves.
