Jerome Gundersen, Jr., a local construction contractor and community leader, today announced his campaign for the 95th Assembly District.
Jerome has spent his life as a builder and a fixer. In these challenging times for our state and nation, Jerome will bring the hands-on, can-do attitude he has learned through decades of experience to Madison.
As a young man, Jerome went from a shop employee to a store owner in a bicycle shop, working as a professional bicycle racing mechanic in the 1980s. Over the past 20 years, he has been a construction and remodeling contractor, recently completing work on the construction of the new Riverside Park bandshell.
Jerome has long been committed to public service. He has served for 14 years on the Rotary Lights Steering Committee as it has grown from a local attraction to a regional phenomenon. He has also served four years as a La Crosse County Board supervisor, representing the 9th District in the heart of the City of La Crosse.
Jerome was born in La Crosse in 1960 to Charlene and Jerome Gundersen, Sr. He obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree in biology from Washington University in St. Louis, MO.
