I remember being at the store from little on. My dad was a believer in work; you can't have anything for free. He didn't believe in allowance, so he would say "if you want money, then get down here and work!" I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 1984, and officially joined the family business. I handle all of the diamond buying for the store, in addition to leading the Corporate Gifts and Promotions department, and am considered the store "watch expert." I strongly believe in doing everything possible to satisfy my customers. I recognize that satisfied customers often become repeat customers. Being President Board Member of the West Bend Business Improvement District keeps me active in the community while striving to make our Downtown a destination. I am lucky enough to combine my management experience with my love of skiing as the chairman of the National Safety Team for the National Ski Patrol.
I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh in 1981 with a degree in special education; but returned home one summer to help my dad with the store. I recalled the days when I was younger of polishing silver and making pretty bows after school, but when I came back at 22 years old - I fell in love with the business and the customers. Still today, we are a family business. My brother Mike or I try to help the customers as much as possible. We hand select everything we sell in the store, and because my dad was the man of all-best deals, we've become very good buyers. I have a passion for jewelry and I'm dedicated to working with customers to find and create exactly what they are looking for, in addition to leading the design and manufacturing of each Husar Exclusive Design. Committed to community service, I have been serving the Wisconsin Jewelers Association since 1984, as the past President, then the Board of Directors and now the President again. I also served on a committee that successfully brought the "Main Street" program to West Bend. My favorite volunteer effort is serving on the United Way Board.
