Wayne Jacobson

Vice President, CCD, BLC, GOLD

Subdivision 3

Wayne Jacobson moved to Oregon from Wisconsin in 1976. He worked for a Portland-based company in the Portland area and around the state for almost seven years. After moving to The Dalles in 1983, he spent the next 22 years in private practice, not only testing hearing and fitting hearing aids but also training to manufacture his own brand and do same-day in-office repairs. After selling his practice in 2005, he traveled around the U.S. for eight years as a Practice Development Consultant for the largest hearing aid manufacturer in the world.

In the 1970s, he began presenting continuing education seminars for the hearing aid industry speaking all over the United States and abroad. In 2012, he published a book for hearing aid professionals that has been through two printings.

Since being in The Dalles, Wayne has been active in the Lions Club and Toastmasters. He was also Chairman of the task force when Wasco County was granted $5,000,000 from the federal government to build the Discovery Center and was instrumental in getting it placed in The Dalles.

Wayne is the past President of the Oregon Hearing Society and was a Board Member there for 18 years. He was also elected to the National Board for Certification in Hearing Instrument Sciences for over 12 years, serving two terms as its Chairman.

Now in retirement, Wayne feels he has the interest, time, and experience to serve the Northern Wasco County PUD customers in District 3.
