Treasurer Shawn Jewett

... I was born in Nampa, Idaho on December 5, 1973. I have lived in Idaho my whole life. I grew up in a small town in Owyhee County, lending a helping hand to others in the community. I enjoy the outdoors, which includes ATV’s, UTV’s, motorcycles, being in the saddle horseback, snowmobiling, and boating. I’m an avid hunter, trapper, and have spent a lot of time fishing. In 1992, I moved to Mountain Home and spent a lot of time out in the wilderness. I learned a lot of the trails and became very familiarized with Elmore County over the years. I joined ECSAR in 2012 to continue my desire to help others in need. I felt with my knowledge and passion of the outdoors, I could assist on searches and rescues. I have enjoyed volunteering my time with this great team in Elmore County. I was elected the ECSAR Treasurer in April 2018.
