James (Jed) Cogan was born and raised Cleveland. Jed lives with his wife Amy on the east side of town. His interests include: playing tennis, basketball, and surfing; traveling to different parts of the world; studying planetary and world history; working full time as an independent insurance agent in downtown Cleveland; vice president of an online startup company and political enthusiast.
Jed's interest in politics began after sustaining a very serious injury from an accident in 2005. Stuck at home recovering from his injuries, he used that time to research the most important issues in American politics. He was determined to discover the truth instead of listening to the mainstream media.
After 4 years of research Jed decided to write a book to cut through the confusion and manipulation handed to the American people on a daily basis.
Jed came up with the acronym, F.R.E.E.D.O.M. to focus the discussion on 7 main political issues, which happen to have the biggest impact on our freedom.
His book was published in the fall of 2012.
