Staff Member Introduction
High School & Middle School

Meet Mr. Jesse Casari

My name is Jesse Casari and I grew up in Hamilton Lakes, MI., and graduated from Norway High School. After graduating from High School I enlisted in the Army and spent over 20 years at various locations across the U.S. and in multiple countries worldwide. After retiring from the Army I spent an additional 14 years as a Federal civilian employee at the Department of the Army for a total of 35 years of Federal service. I earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from Baker College in Flint, MI. I am married to my wife Esther and we have one son together, Eric. When I'm not working I enjoy volunteering to help coach the Wykons football team, supporting the local Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) chapter, and recently accepted the Vice Presidency of the Sunset Lake Association. When not volunteering I enjoy spending time with my family, hiking, fishing, mountain biking, hunting, skiing, snow shoeing, and other outdoor activities.
