Jessie Halverson

Director of Operations and Annual Giving

I was born and raised in the little town of Goodman, Wisconsin and currently reside in Tomahawk since 1999. In 2006, I married the love of my life Erik. We have two beautiful children, Zak (11) and Carlee (9). As a family, we enjoy camping, boating, hunting, fishing, riding our UTV. Personally, I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening and cooking. I also love pets, we have two dogs, Gus and Finn, both Labrador. We also have two leopard geckos, two guinea pigs, and chickens.

Before taking the role of Donor specialist, I worked for 24 years in the automotive industry. I worked in several different positions including receptionist/cashier, warranty administrator, and service manager. What I enjoyed most was the ability to help people maintain and keep their vehicles safe while educating them on future needs.

When I learned about the Howard Young Foundation, I was extremely impressed with the community support. In this second half of my career, I am excited to be a part of the involvement of the good things that this foundation does for the community and surrounding area.
