Dean Jessup is currently retired from daily operations of an animal agriculture products development company, Agrarian Solutions. However, he remains President of the Board. In retirement, he has had the opportunity to get deeply involved with mission efforts. Some earlier mission work was connected to a boy’s school in Honduras, El Sembrador, which operates a farm in support of the school. It was on a trip to Honduras that his wife, Jan, encountered a rural family that had no water source. This opened their eyes to the world problem of access to clean water. Shortly after, they were introduced to Design Outreach, which provided an opportunity to give back and help in alleviating this global problem. Dean and Jan live in Goshen, Indiana.
