Jim Hess

Jim Hess joined Wildlands Conservancy in May, 2019. He comes to us from Let’s Play Books Bookstore in Emmaus, a family business founded by his wife, Kirsten. Before the bookshop, Jim was a development officer at Muhlenberg College and worked for more than 20 years in higher education, where his experience included student affairs, operations, event management, communications and, more recently, alumni relations and development.

Jim loves to learn and explore, whether on a bike, on a hike, or in a book. He and Kirsten live in Emmaus with their daughter, Maddie, and a Chiweenie named Lady.
