She's well known for her hard and uplifting work during the devastating Waldo Canyon Fire. Now Jerri Marr, supervisor of the Pike and San Isabel National Forests, Cimarron and Comanche National Grasslands, is saying goodbye to southern Colorado as she takes on new opportunities in Washington, D.C.
Marr will serve as the national assistant director for Recreation, Business, Heritage and Volunteer Resources at U.S. Forest Service headquarters.
All throughout the Waldo Canyon Wildfire Marr came into our living rooms, updating information and offering encouragement. Marr says she developed a real bond with the community as many of us did with her.
"Everything is about relationships," said Marr. "Communication and relationships, they are the most important things we can have. So when you are going through tough times, nobody can go through it alone. You have to go through it together."
