Meet Jami

5th generation grass seed farmer

advocate for rural businesses

Being a 5th generation farmer here in Oregon has its challenges. Jami is very familiar with the struggles faced by businesses and the constantly changing regulations that can be a burden to adapt to. She recognizes the need for our rural industries to be better represented in legislature, and feels those industries are the foundation of our state’s economy. 

Jami believes that when one makes their living from the land, responsible stewardship of those lands is critical. Removing the divide between those directly involved in rural industries and lawmakers is key to finding mutually beneficial ways to protect the environment while promoting business.

DOESn't shy away from hard work

with A common sense approach

Being of service to her community has been a driving force in Jami’s life. Whether it is helping to preserve and grow a century-old community tradition like Strawberry Festival which brings families together and economic vitality to her town, or helping feed the hungry and less fortunate in one of our District’s soup kitchens, she believes in having a passion for the places we live and working to make them better for the next generation.

Rooted in the belief that Jesus’ example of serving others is still the calling for us today, Jami strives to always find ways that her time can benefit those around her and applies herself to the best of her ability to those efforts.

When not engaged in the affairs of her farm, running her seed cleaning warehouse, or volunteering around the community, Jami is an avid hiker and mountaineer. She loves exploring the vast recreational areas of House District 17 including the towns and communities that call this district “home”.

She understands the unique character of this District and has a heart to fight for what’s important to its citizens with a common-sense approach. Jami isn’t one to shy away from hard work. She believes you deserve someone willing to give their all serving as your voice in Salem.

Having spent years volunteering in the community and championing the Strawberry Festival, Jami is committed to the importance of developing policy that demands transparency and financial accountability. 

As the Board Chairperson for the Lebanon Strawberry Festival, she worked diligently to revamp the 100+ year-old community tradition with the goal of Board transparency and accountability. Safety has also been a huge priority to her. Jami strove to find the balance between doing things the “right” way while still promoting economic growth and vitality.

“No one works harder than Jami.”
