Julius Grant is the one people ask to be their mentor. He's the one people go to when they need someone to hear them, know them. Why? He cares.

Julius is stepped into the role of family elder, career elder and hero (just ask his grandson). He's a Logistics Manager for Bacardi Limited. After serving five years in the Marines on the West Coast, he returned to Jacksonville to find work. It didn't take long for him to realize he needed to return to college for promotions. He didn't have a history of being an academic go-getter. Still, encouraged by his wife, he joined his wife in going to college. They received their Bachelor's Degree together and their Master's Degree, together. While raising a family and working, no less.

He lives a life he loves. Listen, learn and choose a life you love, too.
