Joel Wehrspann

Joel Wehrspann came to the Mandskor tenor section somewhere around 2001, because his wife was the accompanist and it seemed natural to carpool to rehearsal.  Not unusual for the Wehrspanns.  They met while singing together in Lincoln Lutheran Choir in Lincoln, NE.   Joel would give Deanna a ride to rehearsal.   

From St. Louis, MO, Joel graduated from Lutheran High School North and continued his education at St Johnís College in Winfield, KS (degree) and also at Concordia College in Seward, NE, and University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

He was inducted into Concordia College/Universityís Athletic Hall of Fame as Asst. Soccer Coach for the 1979 team.  Joel worked with Lincoln, NE Parks & Recreation and NE State Penitentiary for 25 years. He has had an extensive career as a sports official for softball, baseball, basketball, volleyball, and soccer.  Currently, he works in customer service for TCF Bank.

He and his wife Deanna are parents to Catherine (26), a Luther College grad who just married last September, and Grace (22) a recent St. Olaf College grad.
