After his honorable discharge from the Air Force, Jarrett worked as an Installation Specialist for Alexander Proudfoot, an international consulting firm, where he assisted manufacturing and mining operations across the United States, Canada and South Africa in streamlining their production processes. A desire to serve his community and home state of Mississippi led Jarrett back to Jackson to attend the Mississippi College School of Law where he graduated cum laude in 2014. While in law school, Jarrett joined the Mississippi Army National Guard as an Engineer Officer where he has served as a Company Executive Officer, Company Commander and in various staff officer positions. He currently holds the rank of Major and is assigned to Headquarters, 890th Engineer Battalion, Gulfport, Mississippi as the Battalion Operations Officer. 

Jarrett's law practice includes criminal defense, primarily in the area of DUIs, bankruptcy and other insolvency related matters, debt collection, business disputes, commercial litigation, lemon law claims, and family law. He also has experience in military law including representing service members in Non-Judicial Punishment proceedings (Captain's Mast/Article 15) and other disciplinary proceedings. He is admitted to practice before all state and federal courts of Mississippi, as well as the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and has appeared in cases in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Indiana and Florida.
