“We have known Jack Nelsen since grade school and we can say with confidence that he is a kind, caring and generous person. We graduated from high school together in 1974 then pursued avenues in the agricultural area.
From all our business and personal dealings, we have found Jack to be fair, trustworthy and honest.
Jack's knowledge of agricultural issues is extensive with owning and operating a dairy north of Jerome for many years. His life has been dedicated to service of his community as he served on the CSI Board of Directors for many years and also on Jerome County Planning and Zoning.
Jack and his wife Emily along with their family have been lifelong residents of Idaho making our communities better by their contributions.
We would highly encourage our voters in District 26 to consider and vote for Jack Nelsen for the position of State Representative.”
- Reed & Colleen Crozier-Former Governor C. L. "Butch” Otter
"My name is Rand Bergstrom and I'm a retired large animal veterinarian from Gooding. Jack was a client for many years. I was immediately impressed by his management style and attention to detail with his dairy cow herd. But I really got to know and become friends with Jack through our mutual love of fly fishing Idaho waters. We had some "deep" conversation while trying to outsmart Henry's Lake cutthroats. Jack understands local issues as well as the bigger Idaho picture. I'm pleased to endorse Jack Nelsen; he's smart, knowledgeable and his level headed style will serve District 26 well."
- Rand Bergstrom
"It gives me great pleasure to endorse Jack Nelsen to represent the interest of District 26 B as a State Representative. Having known Jack for over 40 years, I have seen firsthand his commitment to excellence. Whether it has been running a successful dairy/farming operation or his involvement on the College of Southern Idaho School Board and the Jerome Planning and Zoning commission. Jack by far is the best choice to represent the interest of the Ag Industry regarding our precious water resource along with working with our school districts to navigate educational opportunities.
Adding to his experience is his clear understanding of the Building & Development Industry that will serve him well as Idaho cities and counties continue to grow."
- Larren Novak
"Jack Nelsen is exactly the kind of common-sense Republican who will use his ability to work with people across the political spectrum on policy solutions that will improve the economy, reduce the inflation, and strengthen our schools to prepare Idahoans for the bright future ahead of us.

"I am honored to endorse Jack Nelsen for the Idaho House of Representatives District 26B. It's been wonderful getting to know him and his family over this past year. He truly has a passion for people.
Jack is knowledgeable on topics that impact our communities and if he comes across something unfamiliar, he takes the time to discuss it with constituents and learn more.
He cares deeply for our communities and I have full trust that he will support and represent my family's interests well."
- Katy Starr
"We’ve known Jack Nelsen and his family for several years and believe he is an excellent candidate for Idaho House of Representatives District 26B.
As a retired dairy farmer, he recognizes the value of agriculture to our state’s economy and acknowledges water as Idaho’s most valuable natural resource.
He is a College of Southern Idaho board member and former educator who supports a strong education system and understands the roles of students, parents and teachers in that system.
Jack’s long tenure as a Jerome County Planning and Zoning commissioner helps him see that regulating control of communities from Boise is ill advised and he will be an advocate of local control.
We know him to be a well-rounded, common sense conservative who will not be swayed by a special interest group.
We are pleased to give our voice of support for Jack Nelsen for House seat 26B."
- David and Bernice Davis

After many years on Planning & Zoning and now Trustee for the College of Southern Idaho, Jack has always been fair, honest and willing to listen to all sides of an issue.
Jack’s leadership experience coupled with his rural sensibilities and objective approach make him the ideal candidate for our new district. I am confident in the results Jack Nelsen will yield for the people of Idaho and proud to support his bid to the statehouse for District 26 State Representative, Seat B."
- Samantha Marshall
