Jonathan "JP" Huser
Director of Operations/Owner

JP  is originally from Indianapolis, Indiana.  He is an alumnus of DePauw University where was a Bonner Scholar.  Prior to moving to the Tetons, JP worked with Paz Salud in El Salvador,  coordinating medical brigades to marginalized areas.  In 2007 JP started as the Maintenance Director for the newly developed 3 Creek Ranch Home Owner's Association. He established the HOA Maintenance program, including aquatic maintenance to 9 lakes and 32 ponds.  After 10 years of dedicated service, JP departed amicably to focus full time on water.  JP continues to manage the 3 Creek aquatic maintenance program with Mountain Town Maintenance.

JP  created Mountain Town Maintenance in 2010 upon recognizing a need in the valley for a top-quality aquatic maintenance service provider.  Techniques and technologies used by other "pond professionals" were (and in many cases remain) unlicensed or unpermitted with an emphasis on chemistry-only or other one-sided solutions.  JP saw Mountain Town Maintenance as a vehicle to change the direction of aquatic maintenance in the valley and beyond.  By utilizing and developing an integrated approach to pond and lake management, Mountain Town Maintenance has grown to include projects throughout Jackson, Teton Valley Idaho, Pinedale, Star Valley, Alpine, and Cody, WY.  MTM has  traveled as far as Douglas County, KS for participation in an invasive milfoil project.   JP continues to try and find new and better solutions to all of life's water problems.

When not at work JP is parenting, farming, fishing, beekeeping, skiing, camping, rafting, biking, hunting, and brewing beer.
