Born and raised in the Great Lakes State, Ernie DeSantis graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education, and is currently nearing completion of his Master’s Degree in Educational Leadership and Administration. For over 16 years he has been blessed to teach elementary students in his hometown of Dearborn, Michigan, where he currently resides with his wonderful wife Stacey, and their two beautiful children, Vincia, and Valentino. A deep faith in God, Sunday mass, and daily prayer with his family is something that Ernie knows is most important in his life. With that faith, came a deep respect for the sport of hunting.
It was Ernie’s dad, Ernie Senior, who instilled in him at an early age the importance of safe, and legal, outdoor sportsmanship. More so, Ernie Sr. created in him a true respect for the sport, and an utter reverence for the animals in which he pursues.
In 2010, Ernie, and good friend Jose’ Del Otero caught the break of a lifetime when their application was accepted to be a part of the cast of Dream Season Workin’ Man TV. A great deal of thanks goes to Drury Outdoors for giving them the opportunity to expand their passion, and take it to an entirely new level.
Currently, Ernie serves as vice president of marketing for Whitetail Fix, LLC.
God is first and foremost in Ernie’s life, and Ernie knows that Whitetail Fix TV is a blessing. For everything in his life, Ernie attributes all the praise, honor, and glory to God.
