jared.eskew@centralvalleypt.com

Jared was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA, and has a love for sports, specifically baseball. He was a professional baseball player for the Florida Marlins for three years. As an athlete who dealt with two surgeries himself, Jared attended physical therapy, where he came to realize that he was suited for a career in this field. He completed his undergraduate work at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in Kinesiology and received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Franklin Pierce University in the spring of 2016. While in PT school, Jared was able to continue his love of baseball and landed an internship with the Cleveland Indians.

He currently assists the Bakersfield Condors in player treatment when the team is on the road and is at the games if players need in-game treatment. Jared is committed to continuing his education and increasing his knowledge, and hopes to become a Sports Certified Specialist in Physical Therapy in the future. In his spare time, he enjoys an active lifestyle with his wife and son going hiking, camping, and enjoying sporting events.
