Jack Frost, Former RWMWD Board Manager, Passes Away

RWMWD has lost a dear friend. Jack Frost, a 19 year Manager of RWMWD, and the first
recipient of the Roger Lake Stewardship Excellence Award, passed away July 15.

Jack had a long, dedicated career as a professional engineer. In his 34 years as a water
resources coordinator for the Metropolitan Council, Jack was known for his working knowledge of wastewater, stormwater and overall water management issues in the region.

At the Watershed District, Jack’s ability to blend technical understanding of water management approaches with his innovative, practical approaches to water quality and flood control, was a major contributor to thoughtful, considerate, and innovative Board actions. His service as the Board Treasurer was very much valued by the Board and staff. Jack’s budgeting skill and financial management contributed to the Watershed District’s high accounting standards and our routine clean audit reports. Valuable systems he developed are still in use at RWMWD today.

Please join us in extending our deepest sympathy to Jack’s family. We are grieving for the loss of a remarkable individual.

    1. John, thank you for your kind words. He was indeed a true teacher and influenced many people in positive ways.

  2. My condolences to you all. Thanks goodness for dedicated, hard-working people like Jack and your present staff, so all of the public can enjoy the cleaner air, water and land, in this region and for future generations!
