Gerard Jilesen - Ward 14
I was raised on a local farm and live in Downeyville with my wife of nearly 30 years, Jill. We have four wonderful children, Tim, Megan, Kayla and Jessica.
I have a longstanding relationship with the community having served Emily Township as a volunteer firefighter for 29 years and Captain for 19 of those.
I have also been involved in Jilesen’s Service Centre, a family-owned business, for the past 37 years.
I have deep roots to the community and have been involved in coaching and training youth hockey and baseball teams for several years.
I look forward to continuing to represent the community through my position of Councillor for Ward 14.
