Jake Schimetz
Facility Manager
Jake is the first "second generation" employee of NDACo, as his dad, Dave worked here for a little while...a couple of decades. You could say we got to watch him grow up. Jake is a Mandan native - Morton County - and has the kind of diverse background that a person needs when tasked with keeping all the systems in this place running smoothly.
