On May 11, 1983, Thomas Jefferson Eldon III was born to Charlene L. & Thomas J. Eldon II.
As their only child, Thomas was cherished by his parents. Thomas II and Charlene were highly intelligent and believed strongly that if they overstimulated their son's senses in his early years that he would absorb knowledge like a sponge.
Both Thomas' father and grandfather graduated from Harvard Law School, and Thomas grew up knowing he was expected to do the same. As a small child, Thomas would set twelve stuffed animals along one wall of his bedroom, arrange a large teddy bear and a stuffed monkey as the judge and opposing counsel, and then pace back and forth playing "trial day."
On his very first day of school, Thomas was sent to sit in the corner because he repeatedly told his teacher that her desk was in the wrong place. At the end of the school day, as he was leaving, he turned to his teacher and said, "I'll see you in court."
Thomas excelled academically and earned his undergraduate degree at Harvard with a 4.0 GPA, and then went on to complete Harvard Law School just as he was supposed to. Thomas graduated from law school at the top of his class and went home to Oxford, where he passed the Mississippi bar exam his first time out.
He joined the family law firm, and it was renamed Triple T Attorneys at Law. When Victor Jennings called Triple T in 2014, Thomas III became his attorney. Lately, Victor had been keeping Thomas quite busy with his legal matters.
When Victor died, his account with Triple T was a few months in arrears, and Thomas was getting pressure from his father to find a way to get Victor to bring his account current.
