Jake Nerwinski - Volunteer Coordinator

Born and raised in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Northern California, Jake Nerwinski has spent the past five years stationed at Minot Air Force Base, ND., with a brief 12 months spent in South Korea. In 2012, he began volunteering for the Tauros doing everything from door security, ticket scanning, working in the beer garden and even suiting up as our mascot, Tank. Today you will find him organizing our local volunteers (most of whom also work on base), selling merchandise, and on occasion, filling in as our back up Mascot. The 2016-2017 season will be Jake's last with the Tauros, as he plans to separate from the military in late spring and follow his aspirations of becoming a Sheriff's deputy in his hometown.
