Jack Boysen has lived in Santa Maria for most of the last 30 years. Following a 10-year career in banking, he originally came to Santa Maria with his family when he purchased a local business. After selling the business in 1985, he attended graduate school at San Diego State University, majoring in accounting. Following a two-year stint with a major CPA firm, he returned to Santa Maria to start a general contracting business. In 2003, he was appointed to the Santa Barbara County Planning Commission. Concurrent with this obligation, he was also appointed by Governor Schwarzenegger to represent Santa Maria and Northern Santa Barbara County on the Mission County Formation Commission. Following his four years of service on the County Planning Commission, Jack served as Executive Assistant to the Fifth District County Supervisor. Leading up to his election to the City Council, he was employed as the Chief Financial Officer of Good Samaritan Shelter.

Jack is an avid bicyclist and golfer. He and his wife, Kathy, a retired school teacher, have been married for 37 years and have two grown daughters and one grandson.
