Growing up on a farm in central Iowa, Jason Funke developed his love for all things outdoors at an early age. This passion led to studying commercial horticulture at DMACC. Upon completing his studies, Jason started his career in 2003 at the Iowa Arboretum in Luther, Iowa.
His career has taken him to Chicago and Minneapolis, most notably for the Chicago Botanic Garden. With a desire to return to his Midwestern roots, Jason and his wife brought their family back to Iowa. He joined Wright Outdoor Solutions in September 2015, transitioning to the maintenance division manager in June 2016.
Jason is very passionate about quality and the client experience. He enjoys blending his technical knowledge with his artistic skills to exceed expectations. Hand pruning shrubs is a specialty of his. Jason especially enjoys providing manicured, but natural landscapes that reflect park-like settings.
