Our Founder

Stellher Human Services was founded in 1994 by Steve Jackelen. Prior to starting Stellher, Jackelen had 24 years of experience in administration and management of social services agencies, including Beltrami County Social Services, Taylor County, Wisconsin Human Services; Western South Dakota Community Action Agency and West Central Wisconsin Community Action Agency. Steve wanted Stellher to be an agency where client needs were the focus. He vowed to hire "only the best" and to create a positive work environment.
