Jamie Fussell is an attorney in Tampa practicing land use, environmental, agricultural, and water law. Jamie is from Arcadia, where he grew up helping on his family’s ranch raising horses and cattle and working in his family’s slaughterhouse. He showed cattle across the Southeast through FFA, and once had the unique experience of accompanying several purebred Brahman bulls from Florida to South America.
In his first year as a member of Team Beef Florida, Jamie completed his first marathon and triathlon, all within months of getting off the couch. Strength training, running, and a healthy diet with plenty of beef are routine for him now as he works to become faster and stronger. His goals for the year are to become a stronger at swimming and cycling.
Jamie is excited to compete in several events in 2018, which include the Gasparilla Half Marathon and the Coast-to-Coast Relay across Florida.
