Jerry has been passionately involved in the oil and gas business since 1976, when he worked summer oil field jobs during college. Following graduation from Colorado College in 1980, his first job was working in the exploration department as a field landman for a dominant San Juan Basin independent, Dugan Production. In 1983 Jerry went to work for Nassau Resources. His duties involved leasing, drilling, and supervision of a large coal-seam field in the Carson National Forest, New Mexico, among other drilling projects. Jerry served as operations vice-president and president of Nassau.

In 1990 Jerry formed San Juan Resources, Inc. and has built the company to what it is today---a vibrant, forward moving independent natural gas and oil producer. San Juan Resources' exclusive focus is E&P, leasing and drilling in the San Juan Basin.

Jerry participates in several industry associations such as the Independent Petroleum Association of New Mexico, of which he is a past board member; Western Energy Alliance (fka Independent Petroleum Association of Mountain States), and Independent Petroleum Association of America.  When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Stacy, and his five children.  Jerry also finds time to be an active Coloradan.
