Greg & Darci Caesar

Candidate Photo

Greg and Darci met at The University of Memphis in 1997. The biggest Memphis Tigers you may ever meet!

 

Greg, as you can imagine was a standout on his state-runner-up football program and an award winning pole vaulter from Germantown High School outside of Memphis, TN. Darci Richcreek Caesar grew up in Columbia, TN and attended Columbia Central High School.  Yes, it is true that as Student Body President and Editor of the Yearbook she took the Senior class superlatives to take pictures in Mayor and Linda Moore’s bath tub!

 

Greg and Darci met in Student Government while attending the U of M and immediately developed a competitiveness which evolved into a marriage in 2002. While Darci worked as a recruiter at Baptist Memorial Healthcare & Greg at St. Jude Children’s Hospital, they found their first dream home with papers in the windows! It was foreclosed and the love for flipping houses had begun. Soon after their first child (Anna Grace) Darci and Greg followed their destiny with Stryker and moved to Mobile, AL, the birthplace of Mardi Gras.  So its kind of perfect that they have the chance to represent their son John’s birthplace as they graciously accept the challenge to win Mardi Gras King and Queen.  When they win, don’t think that Darci and Greg will not be referred to at home as ‘Your Highness’.

 

2007 they decided to move home to Tennessee and had the opportunity to move anywhere in the state… Williamson County won their hearts 

and they planted their roots. Darci decided to get her Real Estate License since flipping houses in the Middle Tennessee market wasn’t quite the same. Greg ran for Alderman in Franklin, losing by only a few votes (38, thanks neighbors). However, he was appointed to Board of Zoning Appeals for the City of Franklin, so he considers it a win!  During the campaign they found out they were pregnant with their third child, Charlie, as they amped up their involvement in Williamson County.  

 

Darci joined Parks Realty after her first couple of years in real estate. The location and being in the heart of Franklin was truly where she wanted to be and start growing her business.  Soon after they added to their already amazing family of 3 kids when Mary Claire arrived and rounded out the bunch for a total of 4!    

 

Darci co-chaired in 2015 the largest Black Tie Gala for the Junior League of Nashville, the Masquerade, another throw back to Mardi Gras! 

 

Greg has completed Leadership Franklin, probably the best class, and they both have completed Citizens Government Academy. They are very active in city and county activities involving their family whenever possible.  

 

As a family they enjoy spending time together whether on the ball field, dance studio, backyard, ski slopes, fundraising or fishing - Time together is always special.

The whole family is looking forward to working together to raising money for My Friends House. Greg and Darci are excited for 2018 Mardi Gras Ball to make a difference in the lives of these young men and win the Crowns.
