Jeff Sands was born in Saranac Lake, New York, and moved to the small town of Montpelier, Vermont at the age of five. After completing his bachelor's degree in political science at the University of Vermont, he joined the Marine Corps in 2000. Soon afterwards, he found himself deploying to Kuwait and invading Iraq with 7th Marine Regiment.

After the Marine Corps, he entered the corporate world, where he worked for 9 years and moved up the corporate ladder. During that time he received his Master's Degree in Political Science, got married, and settled down in California. However, something didn't sit right with him - there was a feeling that there was more to life than settling down and making money; that life should be more enjoyable rather than an undercurrent of anxiety and dissatisfaction. Unsatisfied with his situation, he found himself leaving his old life behind and heading to Costa Rica to pursue a more fulfilling life. Over the following year and a half he finished his book Letting Go: A Marine's Journey Through War and His Search for Meaning.

Jeff currently lives in California with his fiancé Michelle who is due to have their baby boy, Paxton, at the end of May.
