Jeff Jaeger Bio

Jeff Jaeger

Senior Pastor

Crossroads Community Church

Meet Jeff

Jeff was born in Fond du Lac, WI and attended the University of Wisconsin - Oshkosh, double majoring in Accounting and Finance. He holds a Masters in Christian Studies from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. Jeff lives with his wife Sherrey, their three sons Cam, Cade and Cale, and daughter Caris.

What is one thing about you that people would find surprising?

Those who know me well know I often act like a kid at heart. I think sometimes people think of me only as serious or intense "Pastor Jeff." But my family and those close to me would tell you that I can be goofy, weird, and maybe even a little bit immature at times (in an appropriate way of course!) I love to have fun and be able to just be "Jeff"!

What is the greatest bit of advice a parent or mentor has given you?

My dad taught and modeled that we need to work hard, stay determined, and persevere no matter what the situation looks like.
