This Bronson, Iowa native founded College Products while attending the University of South Dakota. He has worked over the past 20 years to grow the company to a national leader in the industry. He is known for jumping in and helping in every aspect of the company from customer service to manual labor loading trucks. This fun loving guy loves spending time with his wife and two children on the slopes in the winter and boating on the water in the summer months!
This Beresford, South Dakota native spends his time perfecting our products. Reese’s background in fabrication, mechanics, sales and logistics, allows him to focus on perfecting and expanding our product line. With four years direct experience with College Products, Reese has become an integral cog in our team. When not racing around our warehouses helping to guide our logistics and product development teams, he and his crew chief Kari can be found keeping the pace with their 4 kids at various sporting events. When he can find the time, Reese can also be found racing in a modified stock car!
Hailing from Youngsville, Pennsylvania this Slippery Rock University graduate traveled the nation working as a Residence Life Professional for 10 years while acquiring a Master’s degree in Higher Education Administration. She has applied her knowledge and skill to help focus marketing efforts as well as gain/retain contracts for College Products over the last 4 years. When she is not chauffeuring her three kids to elementary sporting events she spends her time at a local holistic wellness center offering Meditation Classes and Reiki sessions for clients. That’s right, Zen Jen keeps us grounded!
This Salix, Iowa native has spent 18 years in finance development and customer service learning all she could from that wild and crazy ride called life. In the 4 years she has been with College Products she has organized, and lead a team of customer service agents to elite status. Taking a personal approach and calling our school partners herself is just one of the attributes of this leader. When not keeping us all here in line regarding our spending, she is at home with her hoard of animals! With 3 dogs, a cat, a turtle and some fish she has quite a zoo at her house (and that doesn’t even count her husband)!
A Hawkeye from birth this Coralville, Iowa native has made Sergeant Bluff her home for the last 21 years. This Briar Cliff University Alum has extensive experience in sales and customer relations that translated over the past two years into an effective and organized Customer Service department here at College Products. Even though Iowa is land-locked, this woman is a Beach Bum! She spends all her free time at Lake Okoboji boating and enjoying time with her husband and kids. She is also well known for her sense of humor and awesome pranks…..don’t sit down around her unless you make sure there isn’t an air horn taped to the bottom of your chair, right Jordan!?
The good ones always come home…..born and raised in Bronson, Iowa, his office is “less than a mile, the way the bird flies” from his childhood home. This Buena Vista University graduate is a force to be reckon with when it comes to engaging the customer and providing them with products and services to best meet the needs of their campus. With 24 years of unparalleled sales experience, Denny leads the way in developing solid relationships with our customers and distributors. When he is not spending time with his family, this true Iowa native is a wrestling referee. Maybe some day he will be able to sniff out his dream job, being a Private Investigator!
Living far from his hometown of Hickory, North Carolina, we have helped this East Carolina University graduate transition to life in the Midwest. During his first year as a full time professional with the College Products sales team Jordan visited 32 different states. Even though he had studied to be a physicians assistant, he has really discovered a fondness for the interactions he gets while working sales. While he has had the experience of being picked up in his car by a tornado, it wasn’t in Iowa that it happened! No wonder his mom wasn’t so sure about his coming to work in the Midwest!
He was born and now he lives. He is old but we love him anyway. He does stuff and never complains. He organizes the warehouse like a boss. He likes motorcycles and sports cars. Jim also loves fruity drinks with whip cream and umbrellas!
