Jared Silverman - Personnel Director, Max Security
Jared Silverman is a Long Island native and currently resides in Lindenhurst, NY. He is the Personnel Director at Max Security, responsible for scheduling roughly 11,000 man hours. In addition to his job at Max Security, Jared is also an Emergency Medical Technician and a firefighter. Jared is a veteran of the U.S. Army and has worked for the Department of Defense in various capacities.
Jared is also a kidney patient. He has IGA Nephropathy and receives dialysis three days a week, for four hours at a time. IGA Nephropathy has no cure. There is no causation for anyone to get it. It is not hereditary, there is no testing for it until you have it, and it generally takes 10 to 20 years to gestate and show itself. In the United States, only 60,000 cases have ever been reported. While some experience some sort of slowed progress and remission, most (such as myself) are not as lucky.
I am looking forward to being one of the honorees for the 2024 NY Golf Classic to support the American Kidney Fund and to raise awareness about kidney disease.
