Jacob ‘Jake’ Urban – Owner / Instructor
As an undergraduate professor, guide, program director, corporate trainer and business owner, I have been teaching in the outdoors for the past 18 years. With my wife and business partner, Marilynn Davis, we own and operate Jackson Hole Outdoor Leadership Institute, LLC. an educational think tank devoted to developing curriculum in the areas of avalanche and wilderness medicine education.
Currently, I am an Adjunct Faculty member at Central Wyoming College, American Institute for Avalanche Research and Education (AIARE) Level 1 & 2 Course Leader, American Mountain Guides (AMGA) Single Pitch Instructor, Wilderness Emergency Medical Technician, Outdoor Emergency Care Technician, American Heart Association Instructor, American Red Cross Instructor, National Ski Patroller and Team Member of Teton County Search and Rescue.
I support the interests of education through my involvement as a member of the Education Review Committee for the American Avalanche Association and Advisory Board Member and Program Assistant for AIARE. In my free time you can find me riding my bike and climbing around Jackson Hole.
