Jodi Jensema | SALES AND SERVICE MANAGER / SPORTS MARKETING
I am so proud to be a part of Oshkosh. I have had the opportunity to welcome so many different teams, conferences, concerts, meetings, sporting events, fishing tournaments and parades to our city. As the Sales and Service Manager, one of my roles is to provide services and activities for the above-mentioned groups. I have been able to think outside of the box and show visitors what makes Oshkosh so special and unique. Outside of work, I love to spend time with my family. We love to moped, boat on Lake Winnebago and attend Green Bay Packer, Wisconsin Timber Rattler, and Wisconsin Herd games!! I am very involved with our community as an Ambassador President for the Oshkosh Chamber of Commerce, Past President of Oshkosh Mid-Morning Kiwanis and President for the UW Oshkosh League of Titans. This year has been a whirlwind – and it keeps getting better!
Cheryl Schamens | EVENT & ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT
Favorite Oshkosh Event: Celebration of Lights
My whole career has revolved around the hospitality industry. Now that I am “retired,” being a part of the outstanding CVB team is a perfect fit. My position requires me to help wherever I’m needed. I register guests at conferences/conventions, answer phones, send information packets to people interested in experiencing the Event City, put together welcome bags for visiting groups and much more. As a part-time employee, I always look forward to my workdays because they are never the same. I am so impressed with how aggressive and successful our bureau is and how well we all work together as a true team. Away from work I love golfing, going to my grandchildren’s athletic and school events, traveling and spending time with family and friends. Being a retiree, I couldn’t ask for more – I’m enjoying life, I’m living the dream in the Event City, and I’m part of a great team at the Oshkosh CVB.
