Trammell Cox – Co-President
While living in Cambodia for two years as a missionary for the LDS Church, Trammell noticed that many people he taught couldn’t read, because they couldn’t see clearly. When he mentioned this to his family, his brother, Parker, decided to address this through his Eagle Scout project. He is fluent in Khmer, the language of Cambodia. He graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.S. in Psychology. He is currently in his third year of medical school at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine. He is married to the amazing Jen Cox, and new father to the cutest boy ever.
Parker Cox – Co-President
Parker created the Eagle Scout project that lead to it all. Parker has worn glasses or contacts since he was 5 years old, and is nearly blind without them, so he could relate to those who can’t see. Parker served a two-year mission for the LDS Church in San Diego, California, where he was assigned to speak and teach in Laotian. After he completed his mission, he led the expansion of Seeing is Believing into Laos. He is currently studying neuroscience at Brigham Young University, and is very involved in research. He is also a part-time ski-instructor at Park City. He plans on attending medical school.
Jen Cox – Vice President
Jen caught the vision when she married into the Cox family. Having worn glasses since she was young, she understood the importance of sight and was touched by the opportunity to help others. Jen graduated Brigham Young University with a B.A. in History. She completed a Masters of Library Science from the University of Maryland and has since worked in various library systems. Her favorite books are the Harry Potter series, and she recently became a mother to the cutest boy ever.
