Nobody’s path to the east is a straight line. But in the case of Jeff Wilkins, the newly installed Grand Master of Masons in California, his Masonic and professional careers have done even more zigging and zagging than usual. From his childhood in Alabama through an army career that saw him serve in 1990 to 2000 to a second career in Sonoma County as a mechanical engineer, though, he’s always been guided by a commitment to service. That’s reflected in his leadership roles within his lodge, Mosaic No. 218, as well as with the Eastern Star, the York Rite, Scottish Rite, and the Shrine. Now, as he ascends to the highest Masonic office in the state, Most Worshipful Wilkins reflects on a life in Masonry and applying his own philosophy of service to the fraternity.
