The Uncommon Life

Uncommon Personalities: Meet Jeffrey Mayer

UncommonGoods Customer Service Team Lead Jeff Mayer
Jeffery Mayer, UncommonGoods Customer Service Team Lead

My hometown is…
Brooklyn, NY.

My best customer interaction so far was…  
Alone one Friday night, a call from a distraught customer: Her Red Sox Baseball Bat bottle opener package was missing. The gift was for a lifelong friend of hers, needed for Sunday night. I knew we had one in our showroom. I polished it up, went to the P.O. on Saturday, and mailed it to her to arrive for Sunday myself. She was so happy, and that made me happy!

I’m inspired by…
Doing the right thing.

My guilty pleasure is…  
Swimming in the ocean late into the season; I hate the cold, but push myself to go as far into November as I can take.

An uncommon fact about me…  
I can prolifically compose a song in minutes, just give me any one note to start.

My favorite place to hang out in NYC is…
Of course, Coney Island beach and boardwalk.

My style is…
Super casual.

Since working here I have learned…  
You can really enjoy coming to work. I’ve worked at many places in my life, and many times simply dreaded getting up to go to work. Knowing that there are such friendly people here, and how everything I do is appreciated is an awesome feeling.

Would you rather…  have dinner with Mozart (or any other more contemporary composer), or play the piano solo at Carnegie Hall?
Tough one. While I would love to pick the brain of a legendary composer, I would not pass up the chance to play solo at Carnegie Hall.

    Hi Jeffrey,

    I am very interested in the “Personalized M is for Me Book” (#25628) where inspiring adjectives are used to teach the alphabet. However, I was wondering if before ordering it, I was able to get a full list of the words used on each page. The person I am gifting it to is very particular with the words she uses with her daughter so it would be very helpful to me to double check that the words are as great as they seem before putting in my order. I would really appreciate it, thank you so much!!
