Jean Hocker

Jean was the founding executive director of the Jackson Hole Land Trust, where she oversaw JHLT’s formative years, including protection of about 4,500 acres of land. In 1987, she was lured to Washington-DC to become CEO of the Land Trust Alliance, the national association of all of the nation’s land trusts, where she served until the beginning of 2002. Since then, she has consulted for land trusts and other clients, including Grand Teton National Park. She is a commissioner of the Land Trust Accreditation Commission and a board member of the Wilderness Land Trust. She also serves on the Resource Council of the Grand Teton National Park Foundation and the National Council of the National Parks Conservation Association. Jean and her husband Phil live in Alexandria, Virginia, but in recent years have significantly increased their time in Jackson Hole, which still feels like “home.”
