In Memoriam - Dennis Presser (1958-2013)

Dennis Presser cared deeply about the Yahara watershed, and he worked hard to improve it. You’ll find his influence all over this website.

Dennis, who died suddenly of natural causes on February 16, was the Yahara CLEAN staff lead for the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. He brought his diverse experiences, deep knowledge of agricultural programs, and strong leadership skills; and applied them all in the development of “A CLEAN Future for the Yahara Lakes: Solutions for Tomorrow, Starting Today” (September 2010) and subsequent Strategic Action Plan (November 2012).

Dennis was a good friend who was always quick with a smile and a supportive comment to help you place challenges in perspective, and he also knew the importance of celebrating success.

We miss you, Dennis!
