Casey grew up in Mesquite, where he was a star athlete for the McDonald Mustangs 7th grade football B team. After graduating from North Mesquite High School, he attended the University of Texas at Austin, where he earned a bachelor's degree in public relations. Immediately upon graduating from college, he began working on a master's degree in theology from Dallas Theological Seminary, which he completed in 2010. Casey married his wife, Lauren, in 2007. The two of them grew up about a mile apart, but never knew each other. Together they have a daughter, Sawyer, and two sons, Dayton and August. He is often made fun of on staff for being an athlete trapped inside the body of a band dork, but he is always up for any athletic competition or challenge. Casey has been on staff at c|Life since 2007.
