Raised in the small town of St. Michael (not so small anymore), Jeff has always had a heart for rural Minnesota. Never one to sit still, he crisscrosses the region in his daily work, helping our communities build on their assets. He’s also been hitting the road with his bike and is on track to pass the 3,500 mile mark this year.
While his day job is pretty great, the occupation of fatherhood is hard to beat. Jeff enjoys being a dad and spending time with family camping, making music and traveling. This summer, he and son Henry are building an outdoor pizza oven. Bon appétit!
Jeff has an associate degree in architectural drafting and construction estimating from Dunwoody College, a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies from St. Cloud State University and a master’s in community development from Iowa State University. He is an alum of the Minnesota Agricultural and Rural Leadership (MARL) program. Jeff shares his time and talent with the New London-Spicer School Board, New London-Spicer Education Foundation and New London Economic Development Authority.
