AIRPORT ADMINISTRATIVE ASSOCIATE

KIM MAKI

Kim started working for Winnebago County in 2013 and joined the Wittman Regional Airport team in September of 2021. With a parent working for a company that frequently flew private planes to satellite offices, Kim was able to experience the benefit that planes brought to an office as well as the simple joy of taking a plane ride. This grounded Kim’s interest in planes and her enjoyment of being around them.

Kim moved to the Oshkosh area in 2005 from the east coast and has enjoyed living here with her husband and three children. Her family keeps her pretty busy outside of work with their sports schedules. During the summer, Kim likes to take time to relax on their boat and enjoys watching the planes fly into the airport from Lake Winnebago.

Kim performs administrative duties for Wittman Regional Airport under the direction of Airport Director Jim Schell. She also supports the work of Cameron Hallock, Airport Deputy Director and Pete Rausch, Operations & Maintenance Manager.

MAINTENANCE & OPERATIONS MANAGER

JASON STUKER

Jason started his lifelong journey in the world of aviation at the age of 17 when he enlisted in the U.S. Air force.  His 21-year career started as a Pavements and Construction Equipment Operator at Whiteman AFB in Missouri.  It is there where he began operating multiple types of Oshkosh snow removal equipment and performing airfield maintenance.  Upon leaving Missouri, being stationed at F. E. Warren AFB in Cheyenne, Wyoming and accumulating four deployments to the middle east; Jason acquired a coveted position as an AGR (Active Guard Reserve) with the 140th Wing of the Colorado Air National Guard.  For five years he worked in a remote part of Colorado on Airburst Range, an air-to-ground bombing range which provides deployment and proficiency training to ground and aviation units.  Nearing retirement, he chose a position in Wisconsin with the 115th Fighter Wing, Wisconsin Air National Guard, as a Command and Control Operations Craftsman.  As part of his term there, amongst other things, he was responsible for taking directives from NORAD and scrambling F-16 fighters in support of Operation Noble Eagle.  After retirement from the Air Force in 2018 Jason decided to continue on in aviation and was hired by Wittman Regional Airport as a Maintenance Equipment Operator before accepting the position of Maintenance and Operations Manager in 2022.

In Jason’s spare time he enjoys long distance motorcycling, traveling, camping, fishing and spending time with his wife and two wonderful daughters.  He has degrees in Construction Technology, Emergency Management, and most recently earned his ACE certification through AAAE in Airfield Lighting Maintenance.
