Jody Fuller is a comic, speaker, writer, and soldier with three tours of duty in Iraq. He currently holds the rank of Major in the US Army Reserves. Jody is also a lifetime stutterer who has faced many challenges throughout his life but firmly believes that we all have the innate ability to reach down deep to overcome just about any challenge life throws our way. We just have to make it happen.

Growing up in Opelika, AL Jody had to overcome two things: poverty and stuttering. Enlisting in the Army after high school helped him overcome the poverty but the stuttering continues to be a daily challenge, but he wouldn't have it any other way. His stories about stuttering will make you laugh, but, more importantly, will bring awareness to an often overlooked condition.

After a 4 year stint as an Army medic, he returned home to attend college at Auburn University at Montgomery where he received a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration.

Along the way, before and after that first enlistment in the Army, he worked at Kroger for 8 1/2 years. The stories are hilarious and had a meaningful impact on his life.

After 9/11, he returned to the Army by way of Officer Candidate School (OCS) at Ft. Benning, GA. After OCS and follow on schools, he was assigned to 2nd Infantry Division at Ft. Lewis, WA where he would soon deploy to Iraq for the first time as the Platoon Leader of the third largest platoon in the United States Army.

In 2006, Jody left active duty Army to join the Alabama National Guard and subsequently deployed to Iraq two more times. In 2014, he transferred to the Reserves and was promoted to the rank of Major.

When not in uniform, Jody performs for a wide range of audiences from corporations to conferences to disability groups to troops at home and abroad. To date, he has entertained troops in 14 countries around the world.

He's worked with the likes of Louie Anderson, James Gregory, and Jeff Foxworthy.

He is a syndicated columnist and has been published in 5 books from the Chicken Soup for the Soul series since late 2013 including:

“A Lifetime of Stuttering” was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: From Lemons to Lemonade: 101 Positive, Practical, and Powerful Stories about Making the Best of a Bad Situation

“Embracing my Uniqueness” was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive for Kids: 101 Stories about Good Decisions, Self-Esteem, and Positive Thinking.

“Miracles in Uniform” was published in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Miracles Happen: 101 Inspirational Stories about Hope, Answered Prayers, and Divine Intervention.

He is a member of two NSAs: the National Stuttering Association and the National Speakers Association.

Jody lives in Opelika, Alabama, with Ruby, his 3 year old Chocolate Lab and Abby, his cat.
