Meet Jeff Green

Jeff Green – Leland Township Representative

Jeff was born in Lakewood, Ohio, and grew up there, in suburban Detroit, and suburban Chicago. He attended the University of Illinois where he earned a B.S. and Ph.D. in Economics. Upon completion of his graduate work he married the beautiful Susan Dunn and joined the faculty at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana (IU). Apart from time in Washington, D.C., on the senior staff of the Council of Economic Advisers and the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania, Jeff spent his entire career as a faculty member and administrator in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Kelley School of Business at IU, retiring in 2004. Jeff and Susan bought their cottage on the North Lake Leelanau in 1987 and spent as much time as possible there until retiring. Since then they spend six months at the lake. As a member of the Lake Association Board, Jeff is primarily interested in issues of water quality.

We welcome Jeff on board as a valued member of our team and thank him for volunteering his time for the good work of LLLA.
