Changing of the guard

visser-220x309We are pleased to announce Jesse Visser’s appointment as interim director of gift planning. You can reach him at or 541-346-6084.

A member of the UO’s gift planning team for six years, Jesse originally hails from Talent, Oregon. He earned his undergraduate degree at Harvard and his J.D. at USC’s Gould School of Law. Jesse returned to his Oregon roots, attending the UO School of Law as a visiting student in his final year.

Jesse practiced law in Ashland, Oregon, before deciding to apply his knowledge of estate planning on behalf of the UO.

He looks forward to working with the entire gift planning team—Mike Ritchey, Lynn Cole, Rachel Hall, and Debbie Anders—to continue serving all alumni and friends who contribute so generously to the UO through gifts in their estate plans.

We thank David Gant for his contributions as senior director during the last five years and wish him great success in his new role as assistant vice president of gift planning at the University of Montana Foundation. As far as we’re concerned, David will always be a Duck.
