Jez is married to Emma and they have three children, Arthur, Kitty and Florence. He became vicar of St Stephen’s in 2009 having previously worked as a curate at Holy Trinity Brompton and then as the associate vicar at St Paul’s Shadwell in East London. Although they met in London, Jez and Emma both grew up in Dorset and often head down to the Dorset coast for their holidays. Before being ordained Jez studied Economics and Politics at Southampton University and worked in management consultancy. Jez loves pretty much any sport involving a ball and played cricket for Oxford University whilst studying for his Theology degree.
Jez sang in a Christmas special on TV with Nanette Newman nearly 30 years ago, but curiously has misplaced the videotape evidence of this great event.
