Jamarcus grew up in the very small town of Great Falls, South Carolina in Chester County. He graduated Salutatorian from Great Falls High School in 2003 and headed to the mountainous upstate to attend Furman University on an academic and music scholarship. 

While at Furman, Jamarcus studied Tuba with Dr. Mark Britt, playing in the Furman Paladin Regiment, Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, Brass Quintet, and Symphony Orchestra. He served as the tuba section leader for several years. 

Prior to graduation, Jamarcus was awarded the Charles A. Batson Outstanding Student in Broadcast Journalism Award from Furman University.. Jamarcus hold a bachelor of arts degree in Music and Communications Studies from Furman. 

Jamarcus started his career at WSPA as an intern for the “Problem Solvers” unit and was offered a job after graduation as a marketing writer and producer. During that time, Jamarcus wrote and produced station promotional spots for the number one newscast in the market. 

Jamarcus then started to produce segments for Your Carolina with Jack and Kimberly and started the “Cool Jobs” series for brand new, news magazine show “Scene on 7.” After successful series of “Cool Jobs,” “Home Hopping,” and “Gaston Grubs,” Jamarcus was promoted as the first reporter for the show.

After several years of reporting, Jamarcus was promoted as Host and Producer of “Carolina Now” on the Carolinas CW 62. Jamarcus transformed the show into an all things local show featuring local musicians, foodie, and makers, also changing the name to “Studio 62.” Jamarcus used his background in marketing and as a content producer to build Studio 62 into a respected community platform. 

The show ended in March of 2017 and Jamarcus was promoted to Co-Host/Co-Producer of Scene on 7, returning to a show that started his love in promoting all the things that make the Carolinas great. 

In his spare time Jamarcus enjoys scouting new local folk to feature, live music, trying new restaurants, and traveling to the beautiful places around the country.
