About Sean and Sara Bess

Sean and Sara met 20 years ago in Pensacola while in training for the Air Force and have been married for over 16 years.

Sara served 8 years in the Air Force as an F-15E Weapon Systems Officer and deployed to both Kuwait and Qatar during that time, flying missions in OIF and OEF.

Sean has been in the Air Force (Regular and Reserve) for almost 22 years and has over 3000 hours in the F-15E and the F-18 with the Royal Australian Air Force, including over 500 combat hours. He has deployed multiple times (OIF and OEF as well) and was the commander of the 84th TES Squadron at Eglin AFB, Florida from 2017 to 2020.

Sara and Sean have 4 amazing kids – ages 14, 12, and twin 8-year olds. All of their kids were born in different continents (except the twins, of course!).

They became a part of the Mosquito Joe family in 2015 and are dedicated to strengthening families and communities by giving people back their outdoor spaces. When they first moved to Eglin AF Base in 2013 they could not believe how difficult it was to enjoy being outside, and when they learned of Mosquito Joe, they knew this was just what this area needed! Their dog is even named MoJo!
