About Jesse Osmer
A native of Northeast Michigan, Jesse Osmer was born and raised in Alpena. After graduating from Alpena High School, he managed a business in downtown Alpena for five years. That experience was valuable in helping him to understand the struggles that small businesses face in Michigan, especially here in our area.
When the financial crisis hit in 2007, Jesse watched as his family and many of his friends were forced to move away from Northeast Michigan to find work elsewhere. It was at this time he decided to get involved in public service and help to elect individuals who promoted policies that would strengthen our region, and our state.
- Elected Chairman of the Alpena County Republican Party after volunteering countless hours for individuals campaigning from township supervisor to Congress.
- Elected 1st District Chairman of the Republican Party–responsible for overseeing grassroots organizing efforts throughout 32 counties in Northern Michigan.
- Has served Northern Michigan as a member of our US Representative’s staff for the past five years. With this experience, Jesse will be ready on day one, to continue serving as a strong voice for our district.
Jesse currently lives and works in Alpena. He attends St. Anne’s Roman Catholic Church, is a member of the Knights of Columbus (Council 529) and enjoys volunteering at the Alpena Senior Citizen Center.
