Jeff, a Wyoming resident, enjoys exploring the historical treasurers and abundant natural resources on the Pathfinder Ranch and surrounding area. “I love Wyoming,” says Jeff. As a boy growing up in Iowa Jeff dreamt of living in the West. “Wyoming is an amazing place and I’ve enjoyed my time here. I’ve met some great people, both my neighbors in Sweetwater country and those from other parts of the state.”
In 1980 Jeff graduated from Vanderbilt University with degrees in business and American history. While attending college he met his wife Anne. The couple recently celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary. Jeff and Anne have two sons, Forest and Scott.
