Jeff was born in 1961 at Travis Air Force Base in northern California to amazing parents, Deon and Juanita Lynn.
After serving with the Air Force, Jeff’s parents moved to a small northern California town called Suisun City, where they lived for the next 30 years. Jeff’s father served as the assistant fire chief for 20 years while Juanita raised two boys. As their neighbor on one side was the fire chief, and across the street lived the police chief, and two doors down was the mayor, it is safe to say that Jeff grew up with a strong sense of community service.
At age 13, the family started with one truck and built a company called Lynn and Sons Trucking. Jeff’s father and brother ran the company until his father’s death in 1995.
At age 17, Jeff saw a man on TV named Ken Uston, who wrote a book called Million Dollar Blackjack, and by age 21 he had mastered the game. As an accomplished musician at age 21, he set out for an exciting life as a card counter by day and a musician by night.
He always found time to enjoy his hobbies and to get the most out of life. By the age of 25, he had earned his private pilot license and bought his first plane. Over the years, he also became a licensed boat captain as well as a motorcycle riding enthusiast.
At age 22 Jeff began smoking, and by age 32 he was having trouble with his voice. As the lead singer, this was putting a strain on his career. He had tried everything to quit and nothing worked. Through his years of playing music and cards, he met a famous stage hypnotist named Pat Collins, “The Hip Hypnotist”, along with Marshall Silver. As he watched their shows, he wondered if hypnosis could help him quit smoking. After just one session he lost the desire to smoke. As a result of quitting smoking, he gained 60 lbs., so he again turned to hypnosis to eliminate his cravings for sweets and sodas. Within 8 months of that session, he had lost the 60 lbs. His interest in hypnosis grew.
In 1994 Jeff met Dale Jones, an instructor at the High Plains Hypnosis Institute, and he decided to start a new career in the field of hypnosis comedy.
One morning he woke up with sharp pain in his left shoulder, and thinking he had slept on it wrong, he did not see a doctor. Within a few weeks the pain was in both shoulders and it moved throughout his body.
After suffering for over a year, his doctor did not know what was causing the pain. As a result of the pain, he was unable to sleep, and he began to gain weight again. Once again he turned to hypnosis, but this time he also began to study nutrition and the effects of diets and diet products on the body. He chose a total mind/body approach. By using hypnosis along with the elimination of diet sodas and diet products in general, he found that within about 30 days his pain was completely gone and his sleep returned to normal. And once again he lost the weight as well.
In 1999 Jeff dedicated his life to helping people stop smoking and losing weight through hypnosis and the importance of the mind/body connection, and in fact the importance of combining nutritional education with a hypnosis program.
In 2005, Jeff opened the Vision Slim Hypnosis Center in Olympia, Washington. Focusing on weight loss, he found that the majority of his clients suffered with pain and trouble sleeping.
Drawing from his own experiences and research over the years, Jeff has devoted a great deal of his life to educating people on the mind/body connection when it comes to eliminating pain, getting incredible sleep and getting healthy.
