As a father of two, Ed realizes the importance of being both an active father and a community member. Often times, you will find Ed and his wife, Gina, volunteering with various organizations. Ed sees his two boys as his motivation for giving back. In fulfilling his duties, Ed humbly wants to ensure that "what we do for the kids is well arranged for them and the parents."
