Jarrod Folsom – President
I am honored to serve the Rockford community as a Board of Education Trustee. My wife Jennifer and I grew up in St. Louis, Michigan and have lived in Rockford since 2012. We have two kids attending RPS in the Spanish Immersion program, and we are very grateful for the world class education provided by Rockford Public Schools. I have served as President of the Spanish Immersion Booster Club the past five years, as a volunteer Election Inspector, and I enjoy coaching youth sports and Odyssey of the Mind.
After graduating from St. Louis High School, I earned a B.A. in Marketing & Supply Chain Management from the Eli Broad College of Business at Michigan State University. During that time I served on the MSU Alumni Association’s Student Alumni Foundation Board of Directors, and completed internships with the Walt Disney Company, both in Orlando, FL and as an on-campus Recruiter. After graduation from MSU, we relocated to Chicago where I began my career with AT&T. In 2005 I completed my MBA at Northern Illinois University. Over the course of my 20+ year career, I have worked in a variety of roles in B2B sales and service, enterprise marketing, regulatory compliance, with extensive experience in process quality management and continuous improvement.
In my spare time I enjoy tennis, skiing, and spending time with my family and friends.
