Banker, softie, Coloradan, outdoorsman and community volunteer.
Alpine Bank Regional President Jay Rickstrew manages six bank branches from Glenwood Springs to Battlement Mesa, a big job. But guess who’s really calling all the shots?
“When I’m not working, I’m playing with Kira Mae. Or buying her whatever she wants,” says Jay, tongue-in-cheek, as he talks about his first grandchild.
Case in point is the matching pink camouflage outfit pictured here. It’s the perfect ensemble for hanging out with her grandpa, who shares his love of camping, snowmobiling, hunting and all things outdoors. Kira, a sixth-generation Western Slope Coloradan, also has community leadership in her DNA. Jay models the example as he serves on the Rifle Downtown Development Authority, the Garfield RE-2 School Board and the Independent Bankers Association of Colorado. And somehow, he fits in time to referee high school basketball too.
