Jalen is a local boy. Born and raised in Sioux Falls, he loves his grandma’s cooking and he was hoping to be a professional fisherman when he grew up. Fortunately, 12thStreet Auto pulled him into its ranks, because he’s even better with cars than he is with a fishing pole. But don’t worry, you can still find him out by the river, or deep in the woods on weekends. Jalen hears the call of the wild like many of us. And perhaps it is all that time outside, under the deep blue sky and walking the freshly turned earth that has influenced Jalen’s love of painting. Who knows? Maybe he’ll go pro someday.
