Commander Jared Antevil was born and raised in Northern Virginia and completed undergraduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where he participated in the Naval ROTC scholarship program.  After graduating cum laude in 1994, he attended the University of Virginia School of Medicine on a Health Professions Scholarship.   In medical school he served as president of his class and was selected to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society.   Upon receipt of his medical degree in 1998, Commander Antevil was commissioned into the Navy Medical Corps and completed surgical internship at Naval Medical Center San Diego, California, where he was selected as surgical intern of the year among a group of 23 of his peers.  

After completion of his Surgical internship, Commander Antevil served a two-year tour with the Marine Corps at Camp Pendleton, California, where he qualified for the Fleet Marine Force Ribbon.  During this period he deployed to the Western Pacific aboard an amphibious assault craft, participating in humanitarian operations in East Timor and supporting the USS COLE after it was attacked in Aden, Yemen.  In 2001, Commander Antevil returned to Naval Medical Center San Diego to complete his General Surgery residency, where he received recognition for his outstanding accomplishments in teaching and research.  In 2005, Commander Antevil reported to Naval Hospital Twentynine Palms, California, as a General Surgeon, followed by a three-year residency in Cardiothoracic Surgery at Vanderbilt University.   

Commander Antevil arrived at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth, Virginia (NMCP) as a staff Cardiothoracic Surgeon in 2009, followed by a seven month deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.  He was later elected to serve as Vice President of the Medical Staff and in 2013 he assumed the role of Medical Staff President and Chair of the Executive Committee of the Medical Staff.

In 2014, Commander Antevil was transferred to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland, where he was selected to serve in his current position as the Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery and the Navy Cardiothoracic Surgery Specialty Leader.
