DeRon was born November 14, 1973 in St. Louis, Missouri. After catching a lot of attention of several agents while playing college football, his career seemed to be set for a long time. Jenkins was picked in the second round of the 1996 NFL draft and played for Baltimore Ravens for several years. This contract put foundation for his big net worth. DeRon switched team several times after that and in 2006 retired for good from professional football scene.

While some athletes squander their contract money fast, Jenkins is one of the exceptions. He decided to invest his money instead and chose real estate market. He is now a licensed contractor so he can make a lot of the repair on run-down houses on his own. And he teamed up with his ex-girlfriend Page Turner who is an experienced real estate agent.

Although, they possess a lot of expertise, house flipping can be still a tricky business. Flip or Flop Nashville is a newest spin-off of a popular reality television show and it tracks their ups and downs in this fluid and interesting investment business. Jenkins and his partner enjoy renovating old homes and restoring them to their former glory mixed with a contemporary appeal.
