JEREMIAH “J.P.” DINNELL is a decorated former Navy SEAL, training instructor and now a leadership instructor and speaker with Echelon Front. He served for nearly a decade in the U.S. Navy SEAL Teams with three combat deployments. Sent to the violent terrorist stronghold of Ar Ramadi, Iraq in 2006 with SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, Dinnell served as point man, machine gunner and lead sniper for Delta Platoon opposite the American Sniper, Chris Kyle, in Charlie Platoon. He worked closely with SEAL Officers Jocko Willink, his Task Unit Commander, and Leif Babin, with whom he had graduated from the advanced SEAL Qualification Training course, and was the driving force on many of the daring combat operations Jocko and Leif wrote about in Extreme Ownership. Upon his return, Dinnell again worked directly for Jocko Willink as a training instructor at Naval Special Warfare Group One Training Detachment, where he orchestrated realistic and challenging Special Operations Urban Combat and Close Quarters Combat training to better prepare SEAL units for the real-world battlefield. He also served as Combatives and Marksmanship Instructor and earned his Master Trainer Specialist qualification while helping Jocko rebuild and enhance these training programs into the highly effect platforms they are today.
