Born and raised by a wonderful family in Charlotte, North Carolina, Jarrett was heavily involved in athletics, even going on to start the Lacrosse team at Liberty University. In his senior year of college, he met Bryan Scofield's daughter, Meg. The two married after he graduated with a degree in exercise science.
For several years, Jarrett worked as a physical trainer, yet spent much time learning the science of baking by experimenting with different types of flour, yeast, and starters. Jarrett was a natural bread scientist and during this time attended European bread-baking school in San Francisco. Jarrett then participated in a Stage at Terre Blanche Hotel, the most prestigious spa, and resort located in Tourrettes, France. He became the first non-European to be granted an internship there. From his experience, Jarrett has developed a new style of bread and pastries for Café Ficelle.
