Chief Executive Officer, President
John Jurrius has spent the majority of his professional career working in the energy sector. Mr. Jurrius has spent the past 20 years developing energy projects and providing financial solutions in Indian Country. In 1986, Mr. Jurrius began developing natural gas properties located on the Southern Ute Indian reservation. In 1992, Mr. Jurrius began partnering directly with the Southern Ute Tribe to facilitate acquisitions on behalf of Red Willow Production Company, the Southern Ute's production company. In 1994, Mr. Jurrius entered into a joint venture with a major merchant banker to facilitate joint ventures between financial investors and the Southern Ute Tribe. After leading the groups to approximately $100 MM of merger and acquisition investments in up-stream and mid-stream assets, Mr. Jurrius was asked to take a position as "Financial Advisor" to the Southern Ute Tribal Council in 1996, where he served until 2001. As advisor to the Tribal Council, Mr. Jurrius was responsible for the overall management of the Tribe's financial resources, evaluation of energy transactions and the development and implementation of a comprehensive "Financial Plan" for the Tribe. Mr. Jurrius' work for the Tribe led to the formation of the Tribe's "Growth Fund," where he served as the financial director. Mr. Jurrius' significant accomplishments include the Tribe's acquisition of Red Cedar Gathering Company; McKenzie Methane Corporation, the cornerstone of Red Willow's producing properties; securing the Tribes first non-Reservation direct asset investment in Contango Oil and Gas Company, and the successful implementation of the Tribe's Financial Plan and associated AAA credit ratings from Fitch and Moody's rating agencies. These efforts led to the generation of hundreds of millions of dollars of new long-term commercial revenue for the Tribe and its energy companies.
In 1999 and 2000, Mr. Jurrius was introduced to the Ute Tribe of the Uintah and Ouray Reservation in northeastern Utah by the Southern Ute Tribe. In 2000, Mr. Jurrius entered into a Financial Advisor contract with Ute Tribe.
Again, Mr. Jurrius was tasked with developing and implementing a long-term Financial Plan for the Tribe and the overall management of the Tribe's energy and natural resource estate. At the inception of this engagement, the Tribe had no commercial ownership interest in energy and resource activities on its Reservation. Today, the Tribe has an energy company with a working interest in nine active drilling programs on 400,000 acres of Tribal land, ownership in over 200 miles of gas gathering and transportation assets, and ownership in Utah's largest gas processing plant. Mr. Jurrius served as CEO and President of the Tribe's energy company until early 2008 when he formed Native American Resource Partners.

The tribal leaders claimed that the Bureau of Indian Affairs had breached its fiduciary (trust) responsibility by failing to supervise various financial transactions entered into by the Tribe's financial advisor, John P. Jurrius.
The lawsuit sought to prevent the BIA and Department of the Interior from approving any transactions recommended by Jurrius until a complete audit and accounting of his past activities had been completed.
In that suit, the former tribal leaders are seeking $18 million in compensatory and punitive damages from four current members of the Business Committee, two BIA officials and Jurrius whom they allege violated their civil rights.
The Tribe hired Jurrius in January 2001, at a salary of $50,000 a month, to manage the Tribe's water settlement funds.Shortly before the 2003 lawsuit challenging the BIA's alleged failure to monitor Jurrius' expenditure of tribal funds was filed, tribal employees' salaries had been reduced by as much as 35%.In the almost four years that Jurrius has been on the tribal payroll, tribal income has declined; tribal members' dividends have not increased; and tribal services have been curtailed, according to documents filed with the federal court.
