John Lemperle (Utah State, 1969) earned his degree in Engineering. John had a successful and varied career in engineering and management from large companies such as General Electric and Anacomp, to some smaller high-tech startup companies in the later years of his career.

Jim was one of three founders of a local startup corrugated box manufacturer in 1986, Harbor Packaging, Inc. Jim served as President of Harbor for 28 years and saw annual sales grow from zero in 1986 with three employees, to over $55 million and 250 employees in 2014, when the Company was sold to a larger Minnesota based packaging manufacturer.
