Mayor Dawn R. Ramsey
1600 W Towne Center Drive, South Jordan, Utah 84095
Dawn Ramsey’s passion for the City of South Jordan stems from her years of service in the community. During her service on the Utah PTA Board of Directors and as Region Director over all schools in the Jordan District, she has spent literally thousands of hours with parents, teachers, administrators, legislators and state organizations advocating for the health, safety, and educational opportunities of every child across the state.
She currently serves on the Executive Committee of the Jordan Education Foundation Board of Directors, working to engage the community and local business leaders to help bridge the gap in education funding, providing resources that enhance educational experiences, strengthen students, and fuel success in Jordan School District. She has also served on the Boards of several nonprofits with nearly 20 years of experience managing and leading large organizations.
For the past three years Dawn has done a monthly television segment on Fox 13’s The Place, discussing a wide variety of topics that concern families in Utah–including early intervention, service opportunities, suicide prevention, finding resources, helping children be involved in the community, and how parents and grandparents can engage in their child’s education.
Dawn is a master at public relations and collaboration. Her experience in the public and private sectors, commitment to family and community, and love for the City of South Jordan, coupled with her vision, leadership, and dedication to working with all stakeholders to plan for continued growth has prepared her well for her role as Mayor for the City of South Jordan.
Dawn grew up in the Salt Lake Valley, attending Cyprus High School, Salt Lake Community College, the University of Utah, and Brigham Young University. She and her husband Dan have been married for 26 years, their greatest joy being their six children. They have three daughters & three sons, and recently added a couple of wonderful sons-in-law. The Ramsey’s have lived in South Jordan for 15 years and are a community-service minded family, with each member spending countless hours volunteering time and talents to various civic, non-profit, school, and church organizations and events.
