Jesse Marquardt

Environmental and Custodial Services Manager

Jesse didn't jump right into college after high school. Instead, he spent seven years pursuing his dream as a professional musician before coming to CMU as a history student. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in 2011. A short time later, he started work as a custodial supervisor.

"Music is a lot of work," he said. "It's not like rock stardom. It's a lot of work, but also a lot of fun."

His current position has him working with a crew of 60 full-time employees and about 65 student-employees who keep campus clean and disinfected for students and faculty.

When he's not in the office, he enjoys reading, hiking, playing or listening to music and spending time with his family in Cedaredge.

"I have a family here at CMU, too. These are all people I admire greatly and I am fortunate to call them friends as well as colleagues."
