Bruce is the Controller of SpaceWorks and has been with the company since 2000.  He deals with the day-to-day operation of the company which includes everything non-engineering related.

 

Bruce lives in Phoenix, AZ, but is a Minnesota native.  He is an avid reader of ancient history, especially Ancient Roman History, and hopes to some day complete the 6 volume History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. He still follows his favorite Minnesota sports teams, the Twins and Vikings.  He feels fortunate enough to have been at both of the Twins’ seventh game World Series victories. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from Augsburg College, located in Minneapolis, MN.

Jonathan is an engineer who began working with SpaceWorks in 2017. He loves technical challenges and anything computer related. Jonathan has experience in RF systems, MATLAB, circuit board design, laboratory testing, modeling and analysis, and power systems.

 

Jonathan lives in Sandia Park, NM with his wife who is a civil engineer. They have traveled to Nepal twice since the earthquakes of 2015 and built a Women's Community Center in rural Bahunipati at the site of a medical clinic that was destroyed during the earthquakes. The project was part of a University of New Mexico student and faculty group called UNM4Nepal.  Jonathan enjoys exploring outdoors and playing his guitar. He has raced in the 43 mile Mt. Taylor Winter Quadrathlon twice and the first time it took him 9 hours and he was the second to last person down the mountain out of more than 300 racers. The guy he finally passed in the last stretch of the bike must have been 30 years his senior. He's looking forward to doing it again. Jonathan is a registered Professional Engineer (P.E.), has a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from New Mexico Tech, a Master's degree in Engineering Systems from Colorado School of Mines, and will soon finish his Ph.D. in Nanoscience and Microsystems Engineering from the University of New Mexico.

Jeff is the President of SpaceWorks and was one of the two principals of the company when it was started in 1999 in Carefree, Arizona.  He has worked for several companies including FMC Corporation, Rockwell International, Boeing and Spectrum Astro (now part of Orbital ATK).  He is particularly happy with his first spacecraft program, P91-B ARGOS, RHESSI for the University of California Berkeley, collaboration with AFRL on small, low cost spacecraft, and SpaceWorks’ contribution to the ORS-6 spacecraft program. Jeff has also worked  as a fishing mate in the Florida Keys, maintenance man at a hot air balloon ranch in Colorado, ranch hand on a cattle ranch in Montana, a handyman at a nudist Swedish massage school in (where else?) California and met his wife, Mary, when they were both working as ski lift attendants.

 

Jeff lives in Cape Elizabeth, Maine with his wife and their three kids.  He sails their boat “Mary” in Casco Bay in the summer, wishes they could sail in the winter and is often found lagging behind his wife on hiking trails all over the place.  He has a Bachelor’s degree from Brown University in Chemistry and Economics and a Master’s degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Aerospace Engineering.
