Hi Laura,
This is a harmless Jumping Spider in the family Salticidae, and we were unable to locate a definite match in our quick scan of Bugguide, however, we believe it is a member of the subfamily Dendryphantinae (see BugGuide), and we believe this is a male spider.

Thank you so very much!   Very good to know, and I very much appreciate your service!
