Born and raised throughout Central and Western states, (Idaho, Utah, Minnesota & New Mexico), Jaclyn moved to Sheridan last year with her little family: her husband and two young toddlers, ages 3 & 5. She has fallen in love with this area and it's strong community. Jaclyn graduated high school in 2001, studied business for two years in college and traveled extensively for 8 years, including China, New Zealand, Ecuador, Peru, South Pacific, Alaska and Hawaii. During that time she farmed, gardened, taught English, surfed and rock climbed. In between trips she landscaped public and private properties and practiced massage therapy.
When she's not in the garden chasing her children, she can be found in downtown Sheridan giving massages at Headlines Salon on Main Street.
Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah I moved to Sheridan seventeen years ago with my husband after both of us retired from law enforcement careers. Through my friendship with Paul & Carla Marsh, I quickly learned about this lovely space and knew I wanted to be a part of making sure it is viable for years to come. I am an anomaly on the Board, as I do not grow vegetables or flowers, although I love both. As our Event and Fundraising Chair, I have the enjoyable task of planning and catering for our events. My greatest pleasure is seeing people supporting and enjoying this beautiful space.
Born and raised in Sheridan, Paul graduated from Sheridan High School and attended Montana State University from 1965-1969. He joined the United States Marine Corps in 1969, and spent 5 years as a helicopter pilot & Viet Nam veteran. He returned to Montana in 1975 and completed a BS-Business degree at MSU. He worked for State Farm Insurance Companies for 25 years, and retired back home with his wife, Carla, in 2003. Paul has been a staple at Jackson's Garden for many years now!
Paulette has been apart of Jackson's Garden since it's beginning! She has been gardening all of her life, starting with her family farm in Iowa, raising everything from hay, oats and corn, to chickens, sheep, cattle, pigs and more! She believes the garden is a wonderful safe community space to explore, and is so happy to be apart of it.
