Jeff Blaser – Bio, June 2022

I have been married 39 years this August to my wife, Marla Blaser. We have 4 adult children and three energetic grandchildren. I enjoy hunting, fishing, mountain biking, hiking, trail running, sport shooting, reading, and time with family.

I began my career in education in the early 80’s teaching and coaching at the middle school and high school level. I gained experience working with diverse students as a teacher, as a professional technical club advisor, and coach.

After 13 years of teaching and coaching I made a transition to Law Enforcement where I served in a growing metropolitan police department for over 10 years. During this time, I served as juvenile detective, SRO, Idaho POST instructor, and Metro SWAT Team member.
After many enjoyable and rewarding years, I realized my training and skills could be used more effectively by engaging youth within the school community and working more closely with families as an educator. I accepted a position with the West Ada School district as a middle school assistant principal and later moved to a large high school where I served in this capacity for eleven years.

In 2018 I accepted the position as Superintendent of Cascade School District and served as their Superintendent for the next 3 years. As superintendent of a rural school district, I have had the opportunity to lead important and necessary changes which have resulted in continuous academic achievement, improved staff morale, financial stability for the district, and a greater community trust.
