Jeff Turner – Chairman of the Board
Jeff is a graduate of Vanderbilt University, where he received a degree in economics. While at Vanderbilt, he was a four year letterman in basketball and earned All Southeastern Conference honors his senior year. He was also selected to the All Southeastern Conference Academic Team in his junior and senior years. Following graduation Jeff was selected to play on the U.S. Men’s Basketball Team that captured the gold medal at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. That same year he was the 17th pick in the NBA draft by the New Jersey Nets where he played for 3 years. After two productive seasons in Europe and the Italian Basketball League, Jeff returned to the NBA with the Orlando Magic in 1989 and played seven years before retiring in 1996.
Jeff is one of the original founders of SST. He brings to the group the knowledge and experience of a professional athlete who benefited from the type of programs you’ll find at SST after he suffered a career threatening knee injury in 1994 that required six months of aggressive rehabilitation before he was able to return to the court and help the Magic to the 1995 NBA finals. That experience has provided him with a unique perspective on rehabilitation and had been instrumental in developing the SST philosophy on patient care.
Jeff currently works for the Orlando Magic and provides color commentary for the broadcast our hometown NBA franchise.
