Fr. Fox was born and raised in Helena, Montana. He grew up attending St. Peter’s Cathedral in Helena. It was there, during college, that he discerned a call to the priesthood.

After graduating from Carroll College in Helena, Jed and his wife, Mary Beth Jäger, moved to New York City so that he could attend the General Theological Seminary. From his graduation from seminary in 2009 through the end of 2014, Fr. Fox was the curate and later assistant to the rector of Church of St. Michael and St. George in St. Louis, Missouri. He became rector of Church of the Redeemer on January 1, 2015.

Fr. Fox is married to Mary Beth Jäger, MSW. They have a son, Jaeger, born in 2014.

When he’s not having fun with Mary Beth and Jaeger, Fr. Jed hopes to get ready for a half Ironman triathlon.
