Jayjack named Director of Communications

jayjack news itemHelp INHF congratulate Joe Jayjack, our new Director of Communications. Jayjack served as interim director beginning June 1 and will now take over the position permanently. Jayjack will oversee all INHF communications and outreach.

Joe hails from Council Bluffs in the Loess Hills of western Iowa and graduated from the University of South Dakota with a degree in journalism. He has worked for the Des Moines Register as a designer and on the art staff at Cuisine at Home magazine at August Home Publishing.

When Joe joined the INHF team in December as a communications specialist, he knew the position was a great fit: “I have been following INHF for a long time,” he said. “I have always been interested in conservation and have enjoyed the work that INHF has done. With my interest in storytelling and conservation, I thought this would be the perfect job to combine the two and help share the story of the work that INHF does across the state.”

Joe can be reached by email at jjayjack@inhf.org or by phone at 515-288-1846, ext. 19.
