Danny R. Jaques
BS, Fort Lewis College
Danny Jaques has been a science teacher at Ignacio Junior High School for nearly twenty-five years. For more than half of those years, he has been a veritable dynamo and perhaps Space Camp’s most effective un-official ambassador. A life-long resident of Colorado, Danny has worked to ensure that the children in that area have the opportunity to take advantage of the educational opportunities offered at Space Camp®. As a Life Member of the National Science Teacher Association, President of the Ignacio Community Historical Society, member of the Mars Society, and Teacher Liaison Officer for the U.S. Space Foundation, Danny somehow found time to establish the Jaquez Rocket Ranch and Ignacio Space Camp. Danny’s organization has helped hundreds of students attend Space Camp. His natural optimism, enthusiasm and utter “joie de vive” make Danny a magnet for anyone that shares an interest in space and aviation.
