Jeff is a true entrepreneurial talent within the hospitality industry. Jeff has a long track record of success with a number of companies, including Dave and Buster's (Regional Director), and Joe’s Crab Shack where he served as one of the original partners of the concept. After several years with Dave and Busters, Jeff developed and started up his own restaurant, Jake's Grill, and ultimately opened three locations within the state of Texas. Jake's Grill was a forerunner of the premium hamburger fast casual concepts so popular today.

As a young man, Jeff was a surfer, following the "big waves" all the way to Hawaii. Jeff had a passion for surfing, the same type of passion that he brings to recruiting. Jeff works hard to be successful while having fun and he loves sports, especially all teams in Houston! Most importantly, Jeff has a beautiful family that he loves dearly! Jeff is just a great guy, with a big  ol' Texas heart who would give you the shirt off his back! He will be the first to tell you... he is blessed!

Gecko Hospitality is grateful to have Jeff on its recruiting team in the state of Texas.

I have been in the hospitality industry for most of my professional career and have had the pleasure and misfortune of working with recruiters. I have recently found myself inheriting a market in NW Arkansas for a restaurant company called Slim Chickens and have had the extreme pleasure of working with Jacob Tarabar. He is extremely organized, thorough, professional while delivering me credible candidates that fit my needs. I started my search for talent with three recruiters and know solely work with Jacob for he has outperformed your competition with Herculean results. I am very loyal to those that support me in this fashion and have recently even sent Jacob friends that are out looking for their next employment. So simply put Jacob Rocks because he is making the recruitment and hiring portion of my job effortless.
