Real Men Wear Pink 2019- Michael Jernigan

Michael Jernigan
Sam’s Club Management

Michael Jernigan Jr. was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. He moved to Montgomery to attend Alabama State University on a golf scholarship and earned a degree in Business Management. “While attending ASU, I met my beautiful wife of 14 years, Ruby,” he says.

After college he joined the Fortune 100 company Coca-Cola in 2003, working in marketing and sales. Several years later he joined the management team at Sam’s Club, where he is employed now.

The Jernigans are parents to two boys, Michael and Tyler. They attend True Divine Baptist Church and are very active members. In his spare time, he enjoys taking the boys hunting, fishing, playing golf and roller skating.

Several years ago, he lost his favorite aunt, Andrea Young, to breast cancer. She fought the disease very courageously before losing the battle at the young age of 33. He was very close to his aunt, so losing her at an early age made a significant impact on him and his family. Since then, other members of his family and friends have been diagnosed with cancer. “This is why this cause is so important to me,” he said. “Finding a cure is my ultimate goal in hopes that no one else will have to go through losing a favorite person in their life.”

He continued, “I’m honored to be amongst this prestigious group of gentlemen to assist in increasing the awareness and raising money for a great cause.”
