Sean McKee is a 40 year old student and has the honor of being a homemaker for he and his wife Jenny’s ten year old son Jacob and five year old daughter Evey. As a family, they all enjoy hiking, camping, fishing, exercising, reading, cooking, movies, music, traveling, volunteering and laughing.
Sean is originally from Indiana but moved to Northern Ireland in 1997 when he was nineteen, where he served as a volunteer for one year at the Corrymeela Peace and Reconciliation Center in Ballycastle, Northern Ireland. Sean remained in Northern Ireland and became a resident of the United Kingdom after fulfilling his volunteer duties and then worked as a buyer for a major ferry company running routes throughout Western Europe until moving back to the United States shortly before September 11th, 2001.
After moving to Fort Collins in 2001, Sean began working as a global project manager for a Fortune 500 organization. Within three years, Sean was promoted twice and ultimately became a district manager responsible for over one hundred employees, as well creation and management of an over two million dollar budget among other responsibilities. In the wake of the financial crisis of 2008, Sean was downsized as his teams were moved oversees in 2010.
Sean took the layoff as an opportunity to return to school to pursue a lifelong dream of helping others by becoming a firefighter. Sean began working as a national and state certified firefighter and emergency medical technician for the Platte Valley Fire Protection District in 2011 and graduated with an associate’s degree in Fire Science in 2012 (AIMS Community College - 3.84 GPA). Sean continued to work as a firefighter until his wife Jenny earned a promotion that required relocation to Colorado Springs in early 2014. At this point due to the move to Colorado Springs and hearing loss sustained, Sean decided to again return to school and pursue a degree in accounting, as well take on the role of a homemaker for his family. Sean graduated from Colorado State University’s in December of 2016 with a Cum Laude denotation for his 3.92 GPA.
Sean has always had interest in politics and saw how real change can happen through the political process first hand when living in Northern Ireland during the Good Friday Agreement that has predominately brought peace to the island since its signing in 1998. After moving back to the United States, Sean has volunteered as a PCP when in Northern Colorado and became a PCP in Colorado Springs in 2016. Sean is looking forward to utilizing his experience and education to support the El Paso Democratic Party as their new interim Treasurer.
