ABOUT JIM JONAS Born and raised in North Dakota, Jim Jonas has always felt a deep adoration for our community. Guiding players to 40 state or conference championships while at West Fargo High School, Jim understands the recipe of success lies in dedication, teamwork, and community support. With 30 years of teaching experience, Jim now serves as president of the state's fastest growing school district, managing record enrollments while ensuring a quality education for students. As school board president, Jonas helped guide the district's COVID-19 response, advocating for mitigation strategies that protect staff and students while respecting parental and students rights. He opposed mask mandates for the current school year. During the school year Jonas can often be found at Packer sporting events, cheering on the next generation of West Fargo's leaders. He is deeply involved in the community and serves on a variety of boards, ranging from the West Fargo Exchange Club to the West Fargo Educational Foundation. Jim and his wife, Denise, were married on the 50 yard line at West Fargo High School's Essentia Health Stadium in 2010. Denise works as the Career and Technical Education (CTE) Director for the Cass County CTE Center.
