Jeff Weinsier Wife
Unlike many journalists, Jeff is somehow confidential when it comes to matters concerning his personal life. For his own and family’s security, he has not yet updated his information if he married or not.
His broadcast career began at WCJB-TV, the ABC affiliate in Gainesville. He then moved to WJXT in Jacksonville before joining Local 10.
Jeff loves using the power of television to help people. His investigative reports led to the creation of new state laws in 2003 and 2004.
When Jeff exposed inmates on work release, driving state vans unsupervised and uninsured, state lawmakers couldn’t ignore it. Senate Bill 278 was passed to make sure inmates never get behind the wheel again.
In 2004, Jeff discovered a registered sex offender was about to be appointed to local parks and recreation board. It’s a board that deals with children’s issues. Again, state lawmakers passed Senate Bill 1774. Local municipalities must now check the FDLE sex predator Web site before appointing people to boards that deal with children’s issues.
Jeff broke the story about uncounted ballots found hidden in the Broward Supervisor of Elections Office. His coverage of mismanagement in that office led to local and state investigations into Supervisor of Elections Miriam Oliphant. The governor eventually removed Oliphant from office.
His stories have persuaded large companies like Mattress Giant, Auto Nation, Bally Total Fitness and Office Depot to give attention to customers who felt they were scammed or cheated.
