Meet the Locals

Meet...Jared Politano!

Living in Danger Cove allows me to be near my three favorite things - pizza, the pier, and the Cinnamon Sugar Bakery.

The Politano family are long time residents of Danger Cove, and their family-owned pizzeria, Gino's Pizza, has served the community since 1979. Black sheep, Jared Politano, decided to not work in the family business, but to go to college and major in education. An English teacher at Danger Cove High School, he adores discussing literature, from Romeo and Juliet to Twilight, with his students. He also is the Drama Coach for the school plays and is a big musical theater buff.

The Politano family are long time residents of Danger Cove, and their family-owned pizzeria, Gino's Pizza, has served the community since 1979. Black sheep, Jared Politano, decided to go to college and major in education and minor in drama instead of working in the family business. On a whim, after college graduation, he moved to New York City to pursue an acting career on Broadway.

Now, he's returned to Danger Cove and is working as an English teacher at Danger Cove High School. He adores discussing literature, from Romeo and Juliet to Twilight, with his students and is the Drama Coach for the school productions.

In his spare time, he loves going to the movies, hanging out with family and friends, and sitting on the pier watching the boats come in and out of the harbor. He starts each day viewing the sun rise over the cliffs and ordering a decadent muffin from Cinnamon Sugar Bakery. The fact that his best friend, Riley Spencer, is the current owner of the bakery makes it all sweeter.
