About the 2017 Citizen of the Year
Jerry Mallmann is a very generous, patient, and respectful man. He is a servant of Christ in everything he does. He believes in giving back and supporting the community and the people in it. Jerry is generous with his time and talent and doesn’t often say “no” when asked. He lives out his faith daily with his family, friends, team members, customers and all who he encounters-not just with words but with his actions.
Jerry is the son of Norbert and Florence Mallmann and is the fourth child of eight. He married Donna Boll in 1983. Jerry and Donna are proud parents of three children: Alyssa (Matt), Francis (Carrie), Beth (Tyler), and one grandson Tesher.
Jerry graduated from Chilton High School in 1978 and started working in the furniture business shortly thereafter. In 1997 he became a partner, and in 2003 became the owner of Chilton Furniture. In his spare time Jerry enjoys reading, spending time with family and friends, traveling with his wife, and of course, volunteering. Jerry and Donna have traveled to Spain, Hawaii and soon to Alaska.
