He earned a bachelor’s degree in science from Purdue University, where he met the love of his life, soul mate and wife, Jeane. Mark and Jeane were blessed with a daughter, Sophia. They shared their love of gourmet cuisine with Sophia enjoying their favorite Food Network programs, cooking together and turning her into a true “foodie”. That passion for good food fueled a flourishing sales career for Mark starting with the Frito-Lay Corporation and then advancing to Waring Commercial Products.
