About Jack

BrandenburgIn 2003, Jack Brandenburg began his legislative career. Serving three terms in the House of Representatives, Jack quickly received leadership positions within the State legislature and proved his ability to translate the needs of his constituents into action. Now, serving his second term in the Senate, Jack is the chairman of the Finance committee and a member of the committees on Economic Development and International Investment, Insurance, and Local Government.  He also serves as Majority Caucus Whip for the Republican Caucus.

Prior to his legislative career, Jack Brandenburg earned a degree in Business Administration from Ashland University in 1974. Shortly after graduation, Jack moved to Michigan where he then started his own company, Blue Water Industrial Supply. The company began in the trunk of Jack’s car and now does business with railroad companies across the United States. It is this background that sets Jack apart. His experience with owning his own business and working in the private sector give Jack a unique advantage that other career politicians do not have. Jack understands the needs of the people in his district and is in a strong leadership position to create solutions.

Shortly before Jack started Blue Water Industrial Supply, he married Karen Linenger. Together since 1978, the couple have four children; Bryan, Rhett, John and Paige. Jack and Karen raised their children in Harrison Township where the entire family has been active in the community. Each of the four children graduated from L’Anse Creuse High School. Jack remains close to the community and believes in faithfully representing the district where he and Karen raised their children.
