Curtis and his wife Deeann have been married for over 25 years and have three daughters, Emma Grace, Abigail and Ellie. Curtis is an EOS Implementer, working with entrepreneurial companies, non-profit organizations and churches helping them get more of what they want from their organizations.
The Rippees are very involved in their church, First Baptist McKinney, where Curtis and Deeann have served on multiple committees in addition to teaching adult and youth bible studies. Curtis also served on the McKinney ISD Board of Trustees from 2010 to 2021.
Curtis’s love for the mission of 25 Project began when he was asked to join a trip to Sierra Leone to work with the kids there. “I knew right away when I saw the love and excitement in the eyes of those boys that I wanted to be involved on a more extensive basis. What 25 Project does for these kids is truly what we are called by God to do in Matthew 25. As it can often be said, I am the one that has been truly blessed by working with this organization.”
