Greetings! My name is Jeff Wetzel, I am EXCITED to be here at
St. Paul's, here is some information about myself:
I am a graduate of Wisconsin Lutheran High School. (2000) Following high school, I attended Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota. I graduated from Martin Luther College in 2005 with a STEP Degree in Physical Education. After graduating, I received my first call to serve at Risen Savior Lutheran School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I taught at Risen Savior Lutheran School from 2005 – 2013. While serving at Risen Savior, I taught 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades along the way, while also serving as their Athletic Director. Also, while serving at Risen Savior, I decided to go back to school to earn my master’s degree. I earned my master’s degree from Cardinal Stritch University in December of 2011. My master’s degree is in “teaching, learning, and leadership.”
The Lord has richly blessed me with family! In August of 2007, my wife Becky and I were married. She also is a called worker, who graduated from Martin Luther College in 2006. Her first call was to serve Riverview Lutheran School in Appleton, Wisconsin. She served there from 2006-2007. After we were married, she served the Lord at Zion Lutheran School in South Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She served there from 2007-2009. In 2009, she was called to serve at Risen Savior Lutheran School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She served there in different capacities from 2009-2013. She currently is not holding a call, but is working in downtown Milwaukee. In August of 2011, the Lord also blessed us with our first son, Kai. The Lord has continued to shower his blessings upon us, and we are expecting our second child in February of 2014!
I am what most would consider an “outdoorsman.” I enjoy almost any activity that takes place outside. I enjoy playing softball, volleyball, golf, deer hunting, bird hunting, and most of all fishing. I also enjoy most college and professional sports. My strong interests are the Olympics, Milwaukee Brewers baseball, Green Bay Packer football, Wisconsin Badger football, and Wisconsin Badger basketball.
I’m always up for a game!
Outside of sports and recreational activities, I enjoy being a husband, father, and uncle. I also like to watch any history documentary, cooking, and keeping up with my fantasy sports teams!
