Jeffrey Kesterson

Class of 2013
Program: Manufacturing Program

 After high school, Jeffrey Kesterson served in the U.S. Air Force for eight years. He then went to work in the retail industry. After 17 years, he faced layoff, as many did, in the down economy.

Jeffrey turned his loss of a job into an opportunity to change careers and return to college. He enrolled in Clackamas’ manufacturing program and excelled in school. He was president of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society for two years, maintained an 4.0 gpa, and was honored with several academic scholarships.  He was also honored in Salem at the 2013 All Oregon Academic Team event with Gov. John Kitzhaber as one of two CCC students, and among 39 outstanding scholars from Oregon’s 17 community colleges.

Jeff is the first person in his family to earn a college degree.  He earned a dual degree in CAD/CAM technology and manufacturing technology from CCC, and recently started an internship position as a machinist with Boeing.

Jeffrey will attend Oregon Tech in the fall to pursue a bachelor’s degree in technology and business operations.
