Mark Jester Head Shot

Mr. Mark Jester (Pittsfield, MA) Mark is a lifelong resident of the Berkshires who traces his love of the outdoors and commitment to conservation issues to a friendship he had with the late Congressman Silvio Conte.

For over 20 years, Mark worked in the insurance industry with the Pierce Hill Insurance Agency, including a decade as the company's Vice President.

Gene Chague: Jester steps down as BCLS President

At the February meeting of the Berkshire County League of Sportsmen, Mark Jester, its longtime president, announced that he had stepped down effective Jan. 29.
The reason given was that he had been promoted within the Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and his title will be District Manager for the Mountain District, which will encompass Greylock, Savoy, Clarksburg and Mohawk State Forests.
He will be the outreach person for DCR for the Northern Berkshires. Part of the condition of his employment required him to step down from a number of boards, including the BCLS.
He thanked the dedicated delegates for helping him over the past 20 years, saying that it had been a great pleasure to work with and for them. He received a standing, hearty round of applause from the delegates.
Jester offered to help Kruszyna in any way as well as future presidents and board members.
Jester, of Pittsfield, had been League president for the last 20 years, which could arguably be called its "golden era. Although the smallest county sportsmen's league in the Commonwealth, it is common knowledge that under Jester's leadership, it became the most powerful one.
