JT grew up in Appleton, Wisconsin and was raised Lutheran. After high school, he attended Purdue University where he earned a BS and MS in Forestry. The first in forest production ( not a fan working in bug infested forests in the summer) and the later in urban forestry (his true passion). He began his professional career as City Forester in Springfield, Ohio. In the fall of 1988, he migrated back to Wisconsin to become City Forester in West Allis. After 20 years of public service he decided to join the ranks of the private sector. For the past 20 years he has been a consulting arborist for Wachtel Tree Science. His major focus has been helping manage public trees in smaller population municipalities where this expertise doesn't exist at thr local level. Understanding the importance that trees play in both the social and climate impacts of our urban has allowed him to use his expertise to impact substantive change in how citizens view their urban tree resource.                                         

JT has been a member of GAPC for 32 years and has been Church  treasurer as long as he can remember. He has two amazing daughters Emily and Melissa. The former has blessed him with a wonderful son-in-law and three grandchildren. The later, Dr. Melissa is a DVM in central Wisconsin working with a non-profit organization performing low cost spay and neuters on cats and dogs. He lives with his partner Sue, the energizer bunny and also an incredible person who has recaptured her faith in service to GAPC.
