Wisp Resort General Manager Jerry Geisler announced his plans to retire following more than 45 years of service at the resort. Jerry has been a season pass holder for 51 years, so it’s safe to say his love for Wisp Resort has only grown throughout the years. Jerry met his wife Nancy, a Railey Realty agent, at Wisp Resort. They raised both of their daughters on the slopes of Wisp Resort and have made this wonderful place home in every way.
Jerry’s career at Wisp began in 1974 working as a bartender. From there, he would work just about every job on the resort, from a waiter to a ski instructor to the human resources manager. In 1982, Geisler was promoted to Operations Manager. Six years ago, after Wisp Resort changed hands to Pacific Group Resorts, Geisler was promoted to General Manager.
With Jerry at the helm and Pacific Group Resorts breathing new life in Wisp Resort, the progress in the last several years has been wonderful. Wisp Resort has been busy - renovating their newly dubbed Lodge at Wisp Resort, adding exterior features, adding the entire Sundown Village, and improvements to other various aspects of the resort.
So where will the future take Jerry Geisler? For right now, he's seeing out the end of his legacy at Wisp Resort as they prepare the new general manager. The Geislers still live in McHenry and plan to continue enjoying the four seasons on fun and adventure at Deep Creek Lake.
