Lee came to know Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of 30 in 1988 and from that point he has had a heart for projects and ministries that promote the gospel. He has been married to his lovely wife Rita for over thirty-eight years and they have two grown children Angela and Jake. Lee's daughter, Angela Sexton, is married to her husband Wheeler and they have two children, Lilah and Elaina; she is also a local children's book author. Jake Allen is the cinematographer for Stronger and his wife Hannah is the Editor and Director's Assistant on the movie. They all reside in the Montgomery county area.
Lee's primary career was in education but he also served as a home fellowship leader in the church and he was the founder of a para church ministry called United Christian Leaders for Youth (U.C.L.Y.) in Baytown, Texas. As a teacher for eleven years in the Goose Creek school district he ran an on campus ministry called Christian Student Union (C.S.U.) at Ross S. Sterling High school. The Allen's moved to Conroe, Texas in 1994 as Lee took a teaching job with Conroe Independent School District (C.I.S.D.). He served as a technology instructor for C.I.S.D. running a Synergistic Technology lab and managed a student run TV broadcasting team. Lee was also the C.I.S.D. Video Production Coordinator which included managing a sixteen member broadcasting crew for the jumbo tron broadcasting system at each of the C.I.S.D. football stadiums. After thirty- one years in education Lee retired in 2012. He then began working along side his son Jake in his company,Jell Solutions, operating as his General Assistant. As the Lord leads the spread of His gospel, Lee has tried to be open to the most effective ways that can be used to reach people for Christ. That is why the Stronger movie project is so appealing to him and why he feels God's hand is on this project. The storyline in the movie Stronger reaches to the heart of a hurting world with the saving truth of the gospel and with the potential to do it on a larger scale.
