About the Wranglers
The Wranglers Inc. is a support group for the Greeley Stampede. The Wrangler organization started out as a handful of members in 1977 and currently has over 300 active members.
The Wrangler organization is currently looking for hard working individuals to help put on the Greeley Stampede. Wranglers must be 18 years of age, be willing to volunteer at least a few hours during Northern Colorado's largest event and be ready to become a part of the Wrangler family.
Members do not have to have a "country" background or livestock experience. In fact, rodeo is only one of the many areas that members volunteer to work. Wranglers help with security, parades, concessions, parking and night shows just to name a few of the areas. There is just about something for everyone.
Jerod who lives in Eaton with his wife Nicole recently
celebrated their twentieth wedding anniversary. They have three children, and
two granddaughters. He is proud to work at his family owned
electrical business, B & M Electric.
Jerod feels privileged to be to have been a Wrangler for 19
years. He has worked in many areas of
the organization over the years, but spend the majority of his time on grounds
and rodeo crews. On the grounds crew, he spent many hours and late
nights in the water truck and tractors getting the arena ready for each Stampede
events. Currently in his third year on the rodeo crew he is the Ramrod on the
rough stock end. He keeps busy by
running the Out Gate and making sure the show moves smoothly behind the chutes.
He is honored to have his family: wife Nichole, a 5 year
Wrangler, and current Wrangler Vice President; daughter Tia, a second year
Wrangler; his son Aaron, who will be completing his final year
as Wrangler in Training (but has been by his side for many years); And his
Mother-in-Law Rachel, who is also a second year Wrangler. He has made
many friends as a Wrangler and considers them all to be family. They are a great group
of people to spend hundreds of hours with during the Stampede.
