LAKESHORE LEGEND; MDOT ENGINEER APPOINTED TO COMPLEX DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE
Stevensville – Jarret Burgess has been appointed to the Lakeshore Youth Soccer Complex Development Committee as an Advisor. He will work with Committee Chair Jay Meeth, Committee Members Gil Urban and Jefferson Clark to ensure the capital improvement projects take into account our soccer community’s best interests and he will add his expertise in the area of civil engineering.
For those of you who do not know Coach Burgess, he is a graduate of Buchanan High School, where he lettered in Football and Baseball. He earned his bachelor’s in civil engineering from Tri-State University now known as Trine University.
After graduating from college, he accepted a position with the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) in 2002 as a Design Engineer. He is currently employed by MDOT, and has worked in design, utilities, and permits. He oversees multiple bridge and road construction projects every year in SW Michigan.
He has coached varsity football for 19 years, 15 of which have been for Lakeshore. He has also coached high school track for about 17 years. He is a current Lakeshore Rocket Football Board Member and youth football coach and has been involved with the program for about 2 years.
Burgess has been involved in the Lakeshore community since 2004 and has lived here since 2016. His wife is Nicole Burgess, and they have 2 sons, Tyler (9) and Nathan (6). Both are active registrants of SWM Rec. His family loves Lincoln Charter and Lakeshore Schools and is deeply appreciative of what each provide to our community.
I know the Burgess family through my association with Lakeshore Youth Sports and jumped at the opportunity to add him to our team. I coached his son Tyler in t-ball, coach with him in Lakeshore Rocket Football, and will work alongside him in both Lakeshore Rocket Football and now SWM Rec Soccer. Couldn’t be more pleased to have him on our team.
When you see them, please tell them thank you for their time and service. Welcome to the team, Coach!
