In August 2017, Nancy Jakups was elected president of the Norbert Associates of St. Norbert Abbey, assuming the role from previous president Michael Hermans.
As residents of De Pere, Nancy and her husband Steve are no strangers to the Norbertine community. In addition to being Norbertine Associates since 2012, they are long-time parishioners at St. Norbert College Parish, liturgical ministers at the abbey, and actively involved at St. Norbert College, where Steve serves as senior director of campus safety.
Nancy is thankful for the opportunity to serve. She is looking forward to raising awareness about who the Norbertine Associates are and what they do, and increasing the community outreach and service they provide on behalf of the abbey and the Norbertines—all while providing servant leadership to a faithful and fun-filled group of associates.
On a personal note, Nancy spends her days working in operations management at Foth, an engineering and consulting firm in De Pere. In her free time she enjoys sports, spontaneous road trips, and spending time with family and friends.
