I've always been passionate about public service. I see strong value in delivering the strategic guidance that lets municipal leaders provide the best possible services to their constituents.

Financial Specialist
Jonathan Schatz

Jonathan joined Ehlers in 2018 to help Wisconsin municipalities  solve financial challenges and bolster economic development. He came to Ehlers from the Milwaukee County budget office where he modeled revenue options, assisted in the creation of a long-term financial plan and collaborated with stakeholders to develop the strategic framework for performance-based budgeting. Prior to that, he spent five years providing research support in engineering and public health institutes at Northwestern University and Harvard University.

Jonathan lives in Waukesha with his wife and daughter. Originally from the Chicago area, he and his family have loved getting to know all that Wisconsin has to offer. From golfing and hiking to amazing food and passionate sports, they love spending time enjoying the Badger state (just don’t ask about sports allegiances!).
