VP of Operations, Northern Region
Jeff resides in Yankton, South Dakota where our Northern Region Plant and Office is located. As a master pyrotechnician, Jeff is constantly working with new product development often implementing our customer’s ideas into our product lines. Jeff has been involved in fireworks since the age of five when his Uncle, who was a master pyrotechnician, took Jeff along to shows every chance he could. At the age of sixteen, Jeff was finally able to participate with his Uncle’s business. Jeff learned the Art of Pyrotechnics not from a book, but from his Uncle. At the age of eighteen, Jeff was shooting displays, and creating spectacular effects for his shows. Jeff’s love for fireworks led him and his partners to what is now Premier Pyrotechnics, Inc. Our motto is simply this…Customer satisfaction is #1 in Products, Prices, Service and Safety. You can reach Jeff at
