Dietrich Jessen

Admissions & Partnerships Manager

Originally from Lake Charles, Louisiana, Dietrich has been immersed in Lutheran music since a young child. He grew up as an active participant in the music scenes in Southwest Louisiana, which eventually led him to discover our summer music academy for high schoolers. After attending LSM for three years (2009, 2010, & 2011), Dietrich decided to attend Luther College in Decorah, Iowa where he studied Business and Finance. While at Luther, he was a member of the Nordic Choir, Vice-President of the Student Activities Council, and served as Student Representative to the Board of Regents. 

He has come full circle and now oversees our Admissions process and Partnership Programs with our many Church and Collegiate partners across the country. In addition to his work at LSM, he serves as Organist for Christ the King Lutheran Church in New Brighton, MN. In his spare time you can find him attending various musical events in the Twin Cities and traveling. He resides in South Minneapolis.
