Tell Us A Bit About Yourself. (Career, Hobbies, Interests) I have been a middle school teacher for 13 years. I teach Social Studies and Music (Guitar, Bass, Drums - basically like school of rock haha). People always tell me I'm crazy for wanting to teach this age group, but I love it. I love to be a part of the community through coaching Volleyball, basketball and baseball. I have 4 kids: Haydn (16) Brody (13) Tyson (9) and Lennon (5). I love following them around to all their activities and being the loudest parent cheering them on. I love to play sports. I play softball, Hockey and basketball. I love music. Music is a huge part of my family life, we are constantly listening, playing and singing to music. I love concerts and have spent crazy amounts of money on concert tickets haha. I am president of the local Little League baseball association. One of my proudest moments in baseball is bringing the Challenger Baseball program to my town, which gives kids with disabilities a chance to play baseball. One of the saddest days was when I found out that my beard would not grow any longer. It had reached its terminal length. BUT I will rock this beard to its full potential as I always do!!!
What's Your Motto / What Do You Stand For? Work Hard, Be Yourself, and Have Fun!!
Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) I have always been a person who doesn't mind looking different. I love how my beard helps me stand out in the crowd. I am known by many in my small town as "the guy with the big beard" and I love that. I have battled through many things in my life: Gun Shot wound, Skin Cancer, Near drowning, family addiction, family divorces and the one thing that has always remained constant is my wife, my family and my beard - what else does a man need?

Tell Us A Bit About Yourself. (Career, Hobbies, Interests) Hi, my name is Jarek and I'm 26 years old. I'm interested in meeting people from the bearding communities especially those who take part in contests. I also love sneaker culture! I like to spend lots of money on buying sneakers, reading about them, learning some history, looking forward to new releases and customs.
What's Your Motto / What Do You Stand For? Sneakers were meant to be worn, no matter the cost! / Be honest with yourself and people.
Tell Us Why You Have The MEANEST Beard? (Share An Interesting Story Behind Your Beard. We Want To Know Who The Man Behind The Beard Is.) Most of my episodes in life are music related like gigs and music festivals. I love them all but they are nowhere close to growing beard. My beard is now at it's longest and best that it ever has been in my life. From meeting people in bearded community to watching my beard goals at worlds in Antwerp through taking part myself in contests to many photo sessions. The more my beard grows the more exciting my life is. I love everything about it.

I did the movember challenge in 2016 and didn't shave. By the end of the month I was getting complements so I've decided to keep it. With the beard comps that I attended we donate proceeds to charity so it's a win win for me!!

I started growing my beard 3 1/2 years ago along with my fitness journey! I have lost 70 lbs and gained a huge beard!! I feel great! I have gained a ton of confidence from both as well! It has given me a platform to have a positive impact which is truly amazing!

I went with my friends to the first beard and moustache championships in Poland this year (2019). These feelings will stay in my memory for the rest of my life. The stress on the stage. Until suddenly the results are announced; I won in the moustache category. I was happy as a child! It gave me new opportunities to do more beard related stuff.
