Jessie Furner Joins the Chamber

Jessie Furner has accepted the position of Executive Director of the Bucyrus Area Chamber of Commerce, and will begin work in this role on December 9. A graduate of Marion Technical College with an Associate Degree in Human Resources Management, Furner comes to the Chamber from her most recent job as an Eligibility Referral Specialist at Ohio Means Jobs in Crawford County.

“The board of directors purposely approached the selection process methodically,” said Jody Spiegel, Chamber board president. “We wanted to be sure we were choosing an individual with the enthusiasm and dedication to Bucyrus necessary to continue the forward momentum of the Chamber. Jessie has already proven her commitment to the community through volunteerism and service, and we can’t wait to see the positive impact she will have on the Chamber and the businesses we support.”

“At 10 months old, I already knew I wanted to be a Bucyrus girl!” Furner said. “My family moved up here from Kentucky and I never left. What makes the Bucyrus community so special are the people here. I am ready, energized, and honored to serve Bucyrus in this capacity.” Furner will be tasked with crafting and implementing new Chamber member outreach strategies, increasing the visibility of the Chamber in the business community, and opening dialogue about the contributions the Chamber can make to new and established businesses in the Bucyrus area.

Furner lives in Bucyrus with her husband Andy and two children, Quin (14) and Cedric (17). Starting December 9, she can be reached at [email protected].
