Jared Allman is an American born Actor. He attended the University of Tennessee earning his bachelor's degree in business from Tusculum College.

Early and personal life[edit]

Allman’s father was in the Air Force during his early childhood, and as a result, he and his family relocated often. They eventually settled on a farm in Tennessee when Allman was 12. Allman comments, “I would always dream about getting away from the farm. I didn’t want to work in a sewing factory and do the whole family and kids thing.”[1]

During his time at Tusculum, Allman came out to his family when he was 22. “It was almost life and death for me. I felt very isolated, alone, and empty. Like anyone who feels those feelings you start thinking the unthinkable,” he said in an interview with The Advocate.[2] Following college graduation, Allman’s first job was in the music business doing merchandise for a variety of touring artists. He later worked with WME talent agency in Nashville before leaving his position to pursue a career as an actor.[3][4]
