Hi. My name is Chris Cope.Â I was born in the town of Jerome Idaho, May 2nd 1968.Â I lived in Jerome until I was 2 years old when the family moved to Boise. After roughly 6 or 7 years, we moved to Idaho Falls where my Dad got a job working for KIFI channel 8 as the Chief Engineer.Â Idaho Falls was really where I considered home.Â We lived there for about 8 years. I went through my grade school, junior high and high school years in Idaho Falls. I graduated from Bonneville HS in 1986 and joined the Air Force. The date I was scheduled to go into the Air Force was a year out from when I signed up.Â During this time, my family moved back to Boise.
