Jeffrey “Anton” Collins was elected to the Charleston Jazz Board shortly after he attended his first CJO show in 2017. He found the organization’s attention to the art form, the musicianship, and most of all, the people to be a center where he could easily devote his own energies. He previously served as CJO’s Treasurer, and on the organization’s Executive Committee. He loves being a season ticket holder. He admits that occasional front row exchanges with CJO Director Robert Lewis is one of his guilty pleasures.
Anton is an attorney with his Chicago-based boutique tax law firm. After six years in Charleston, he currently resides in Greenville, SC with wife, Taylor.
