Jenelle and David Eason now run a scuba diving business previously owned by a friend

David Eason Jenelle scuba diving business Elite Marine

It seems Jenelle Eason’s husband David Eason has found gainful employment after being fired from Teen Mom 2! He and Jenelle are apparently the new owners and operators of Elite Marine Underwater Diving and Services.

Elite Marine’s Facebook page made the ownership transition announcement on Tuesday and included the new virtual business card above that includes a photo of David and Jenelle. From the Facebook post:

New Owners , Same Business. SSI Scuba Certified and Nitrox Certified. The weather is getting warmer so get your boats cleaned soon and be ready for the water! Serving the NC and SC coast. ❤️🌊

Smartphone App will be available soon for FREE. You will be able to make payments, order services, get quotes, or schedule appointments! Website is still under construction for now, launching within the next week.

I should clarify that it may just be David associated with the business, despite Jenelle being included in the photo. Here is another picture of just David’s business card with his phone number blurred out:

The Elite Marine Instagram account already has photos of David doin’ his scuba thang as well:

I did a little research, and it looks like Elite Marine used to belong to Chris Wilshire, who is the husband of Jenelle’s close friend Jamie Lynn Wilshire. David has some rather HUGE flippers to fill because not only is Chris a former Marine with two tours of duty in Afghanistan, but he was so damn good at his Elite Marine job that he won an award for Person of the Year! For potentially saving lives!

From Lumina News:

Problem solving is one of Wilshire’s qualities. And for the problem he solved on April 28, 2016, in Wrightsville Beach, Wilshire is the 2016 Lumina News Person of the Year. On that Thursday afternoon at Wrightsville Marina, Wilshire recognized a dangerous situation and took immediate action that helped protect both the people and the property at the marina.

At about 2:30 p.m., the typically calm marina suddenly came under gunfire when two young men were firing a 30-calibre rifle for target practice on a nearby spoil island. The brush and trees weren’t enough to stop the high-powered rounds from coming into the marina, hitting boats and striking dangerously close to people.



Wilshire, a former Marine with two tours of duty in Afghanistan, knew how close the rounds were and took action, swimming 100 yards under the gunfire to confront the shooters and end the situation. One man was charged for damaging property. Wilshire said neither understood the danger of what they thought was simply target practice.

In case you are wondering what the day-to-day kinds of things that David will be doing, it looks like a lot of propeller repair and other underwater boat maintenance tasks. He may also get an occasional gig taking underwater photographs or doing search and recovery for items lost in the water.
