About Gerald “Jerry” DiTullio

Revive-the-Greenbelt-151

For more than 30 years I have been a resident of Jefferson County and the City of Wheat Ridge with my wife Julie and our two children. I was born in North Denver near old Elitches and grew up in the house that my father and mother built in the early 1950s. I attended Edison Elementary, St. Mary Magdalene Middle School and Holy Family High School.

I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science & Management from Metropolitan State University (MSU).  I earned my M.B.A. from Regis University and also earned a Master in Education (M.Ed.) from Regis University in 2016. I received my teaching license in Special Education (SPED) from Regis University. I am also endorsed to teach in English/Lang Arts, Social Studies, Career & Technical Education (CTE, ACE, Business Pathways), Business & Marketing and Elementary Education.

Over the years, I have changed careers by my own choice. I believe, “It is always in one’s best interest to keep re-inventing yourself. It helps keep your mind clear and open.” I have owned a software consulting company and a coffee shop in Wheat Ridge. Additionally, I have worked as a commercial banker and am now teaching special education classes in Jefferson County Public Schools – Wheat Ridge High School (WRHS).  My last day with WRHS and Jefferson County Public Schools was 12/31/2018 due to winning the election for Jefferson County Treasurer.

For the last 23 years I have been involved with city government in Wheat Ridge and the metro area. I was first elected to City Council in 1995 after running and losing twice to incumbents in 1991 and 1993. In November/2015 I was elected City Treasurer and in November/2018 I was elected Jefferson County Treasurer.
