Jason DePaepe
Position: Assistant AD/Facilities
Alma Mater: Iowa State '99
Phone: 303-735-5494
Email: jason.depaepe@colorado.edu

Jason DePaepe is in his 15th year at the University of Colorado and his second as the assistant athletic director for facilities, promoted to that post in February 2013.

He is responsible for overseeing all facility needs for Folsom Field, the Dal Ward Athletic Center, Balch Fieldhouse, Prentup Field, Potts Field, the Football Practice Facility, Kittredge Lacrosse Field, and the Kittredge Tennis Facility.

DePaepe, 40, had served as the athletic turf manager for 12 years prior to his promotion, responsible for all maintenance, renovation, upkeep and painting and design of Folsom Field’s natural grass surface as well as the athletic practice fields located just north of Boulder Creek and Prentup Field, home to CU’s women’s soccer team. He originally joined CU in June 2000 as an assistant turf manager and was promoted to the head position in February 2001.† He is considered by many to be one of the best in his field, and he still oversees all of CU’s field operations.

The Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA) honored DePaepe and his staff in January 2003, when the organization recognized Folsom Field’s turf with the Football Field of the Year Award for the college/university division.† STMA has over 2,400 members, so the award, especially in just the fourth season since Folsom returned to natural grass, was quite an honor.

In 2008, he oversaw the complex replacement of SportGrass on the Folsom Field floor with a natural Kentucky blue grass.

He came to CU from the Baltimore Ravens, where he was the assistant field manager for a year.† Prior to that, he was employed at Iowa State, where he graduated from in 1999 with Bachelor’s degree in Horticulture and Turf Grass Management.† He worked two years at ISU as a student turf manager.

He was born May 4, 1974 in Minot, N.D., and graduated from Waterloo (Iowa) West, where he lettered in baseball and basketball.† His hobbies include golf and basketball.† He is married to the former Kristen Sorensen, CU’s former director of special events, and the couple has one daughter, Brielle (1)
