Sean Shea was born March 21, 1962 in Naugatuck, CT. He attended Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Lyndon State College and graduated with a B.S. in Meteorology. (Yes, studying the weather.)
For the next 30 years his focus and passion has been on selling high technology products in the Nashua, NH area. He started one of the first high tech websites and began to build a data and marketing business that he is the president and founder of that serves B2B technology companies.
Although always able to lead sales teams and perform at the highest levels, the crippling effects of alcoholism took its toll which finally led to a surrender and a new life in recovery with no alcohol or drugs. A process of moving from self-centeredness to helping others had started. Sean enjoys bringing recovery meetings into jails, prisons and medical facilities and serves on the board of directors of the Addiction Recovery Coalition. Today he continues these efforts and participates in a prison ministry in Florida where he moved to 2 years ago.
7 years ago, devastating serious challenges that seemed insurmountable were faced, leading him to another surrender point; he turned his life over to Jesus Christ.
Sean learned about TBM a few years back while looking for an organization that was doing mission trips to Haiti; his involvement and appreciation of the work that TBM does increased with every interaction from speaking to Jeff Watters, golfing in a TBM fundraiser, going to the Big Event and the life changing 9 days in Kibera Kenya in March of 2022 accompanied by his pastor who baptized him 7 years ago.
Sean has been on several mission trips to Haiti and one to Kenya. By the grace of God, these devastating life events that seemed insurmountable, that occurred 7 years ago, have been overcome in victory.
Sean’s favorite verse is 2 Corinthians 9:6-7: “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
