MEET JEFF

I’m a plumber, not a politician

Jeff grew up in rural Underwood, Iowa, and still has family all over the county. He spent his teen years walking beans, bailing hay, and cutting wood and is a graduate of Underwood High School. 

Jeff completed a 5-year apprenticeship program and has been a proud member of the United Association union member and plumber since 2007. He has experience managing crews of large crews over multi-million-dollar project sites. 

 Jeff serves as the President of the Western Iowa Labor Federation, a role in which he represents more than 10,000 union members in 36 counties across western Iowa. He also sits on the executive board of the Iowa Federation of Labor, AFL-CIO, and the Western Iowa Workforce Development boards. 

Jeff married his wife, Melissa in 2011, and they enjoy taking their two boxers on walks in their free time.
