    JIM JEZEK Baseball

    While it’s not uncommon to find multi-sport athletes, Jim Jezek is an example of a multi-sport official. For nearly the past 25 years, he’s worked his way around the local officiating circuit for baseball and football.

    Born in November of 1964 in Aberdeen, Jezek graduated from Franklin Pierce High School in 1983 and attended Green River College in Auburn. He was a second baseman on the baseball diamond and also played golf, but it’s been as an official that he’s made his mark on the local athletics scene.

    Jezek started umpiring in the Summit-Parkland Youth Association in 1997 and joined the Western Washington Baseball Umpires Association in 1999. He umpired various USSSA and Girls’ Seattle League Tournaments. He added football to his resume when he joined the Western Washington Football Officials Association in 2009, and he joined the Pierce County Umpires Association in 2012.

    Particularly in the past five years, Jezek has kept a busy schedule officiating both sports. He’s worked high school district baseball games at the 2A, 3A, and 4A levels and has also officiated high school football playoff contests during that time.
