Jerry has also helped with the support of athletics by volunteering his time to the fund raising efforts of the WSU Warrior Club, serving as President.

Jo Stejskal earned her BS in Nursing from the College of St. Teresa, MS in Nursing from U-WI-Madison, EdD in Educational Leadership from the University of St. Thomas. Jo joined the faculty at WSU in 1975. Jo has been the Nursing Department Chairperson in 1992-2001, and again from2005 to the present. Jo is also very active in WSU committees.

Jo & Jerry are avid Warrior fans and can be found cheering on WSU teams, traveling to many out of town games to help support WSU athletes.

WSU has been an integral part of our lives for many decades, providing the opportunity to practice my profession and maintain friendships established because of our relationship with the University. We value the mission of WSU and desire to contribute to others’ achievements on their career paths. We believe in paying it forward.
