Meet Jimmy Mac

As a proud native North Idahoan and a father of two wonderful children attending schools in our district, I am deeply committed to ensuring that all students in Zone Two receive exceptional and challenging educational opportunities with a focus on academic rigor, promoting good citizenship, and earning practical knowledge and skills.


Rooted in Idaho Values

Growing up in St. Maries, Idaho, I developed a strong sense of community and learned the importance of standing up for Idaho values. For me, this sentiment is not just a folksy, feel-good cliché about small-town life. My mother died when I was three years old, and my father was absent. If not for my grandmother, aunt and uncle, and numerous teachers, coaches, and friends’ dads along the way, I would not be where I am today, and I would not reflect on my upbringing as joyfully as I do. They really stepped in and supported me in all my endeavors.

I’m grateful that I was fortunate to grow up in a close community where people helped each other out purely because of their kindness and profound commitment to the welfare of the community in which they lived. Because of these values, instead of being another story of neglect, my story was one of boundless opportunity: I graduated with honors from my high school, having lettered in three sports and served as Student Body President. 

I moved to Coeur d’Alene in 1997 to attend NIC. While there, I met my wife, and I have made Coeur d’Alene my home ever since. I went into the mortgage business and am now the Real Estate Sales Manager for Mountain West Bank. My career is a testament to the fact that a solid high school education is an essential element in preparing people for success.
