Jeffrey Thompson is a visual designer, adjudicator and instructor for the marching arts activity. His love for music and the marching arts began at a young age when he and his father would travel across the country to attend Drum Corps shows each summer. The impact of sound and artistry experienced at these shows would later become the driving force behind his love and passion for the marching arts, that is apparent in his work to this day.
As a student of visual design, Jeffrey has spent years learning from and working alongside his mentor, Leon May (Boston Crusaders). The knowledge gained from this relationship has helped forge a pathway to competitive success for Jeffrey’s designs, which have medaled in BOA regionals, BOA Grand Nationals (2021 Class 2A Grand National Champion) and numerous State Championships throughout the country. Within the indoor activity, Jeffrey’s designs have medaled in several different classes across the different platforms and circuits.
Outside of the marching realm, Jeffrey holds a bachelors degree in Business Mgt. from Eastern Ky. University and a Masters of Arts in Education (LBD) from Georgetown College.
