After graduation from High School, Jerry attended Minnesota Bible College and later graduated from the University of Wisconsin Graduate School of Banking.  Jerry spent his career working in the financial and business sectors.  The past 22 years at a community bank in Waupun.  In his various capacities, he worked with families to save and build for their futures; finance cars, boats and campers; homes and education; businesses and farming. 

Following his retirement, Jerry was elected to represent the 52nd Assembly District in 2022. O’Connor noted, “I signed up for this job because I sincerely care about the people in my communities, together with the broader concerns we see nationally and the challenges that are tearing at the social fabric of our nation.  I will continue to approach these issues with the common-sense conservative, time tested principles that built this great nation.”

VOLUNTARY ACTIVITIES:  Jerry is currently serving as the Board Treasurer of the “e-Center for Hope and Vision” (national organization); and is a member of the Fond du Lac Rotary  Club.

Jerry brought his knowledge of banking and leadership skills to the legislature in an effort to improve the outcome of all Wisconsin residents.

Your vote matters because today you are electing belief systems possibly more than the individual.  Based on the last election results, Jerry represents an overwhelming majority of Fond du Lac resident's core values by a margin of nearly two-to-one.  I humbly ask you to help return me to the Assembly in 2025-2026 as your representative for the new 60th District.
