Location: Oxford, Maryland
I was born in Baltimore, MD. My mother was a Caroline County Teacher. My father owned a landscaping company and was a self-taught chef who also ran a successful catering company. I’ve always had a love for the outdoors and for boats, since I grew up on the Choptank River in Denton, MD. Around the age of twelve, I discovered my passion for cooking and began learning the process of farm to table preparation. The first twenty years of my career were spent as a chef, working in many establishments on the Eastern Shore. About two years ago, I decided to re-visit my childhood love of boats and changed my career path to work in the marine industry. I’ve found a new passion in detailing boats, and I’m excited to continue learning and growing with DiMillo’s.
Jerome started at DiMillo’s in 2023.
