Jerry is originally from Wisconsin, where his love of the outdoors and nature developed and grew. A graduate of The University of Chicago in economics and finance, he has worked in the energy business with large and small companies for 40 years in a variety of capacities, spanning financial management, strategic planning, and business development. Jerry’s career and travels brought him and his wife Jane to Colorado several times, planting the seed to eventually become Crested Butte residents in 2013 and split time with their other home in Houston.

An avid photographer, Jerry also enjoys hiking and snow-shoeing in the CB area.
