TCSAR names new coordinator, Mike Estes

JACKSON, Wyo. — Teton County Search and Rescue (TCSAR) today announced that Mike Estes is the new TCSAR Coordinator as of March 29.

“Mike is one of the original TCSAR volunteers, and we are excited to have him transition into this new role,” TCSAR said in a press release. “As we welcome Mike, we would like to thank Jess King for her seven years of fantastic work progressing TCSAR and our partnerships. Jess decided to take some time to travel and be closer to family. Her last day was March 1. We would also like to thank Anthony Stevens for serving as the interim Coordinator for the past month. Anthony is handing the Coordinator reigns to Mike but isn’t going anywhere; he will remain a volunteer and our Training Advisor.”

The transition presented an opportunity for TCSAR to evaluate the roles of the TCSAR Coordinator and Board of Advisors in leading their team of volunteers.

Estes’ primary role is to support the TCSAR Board of Advisors in ensuring the team is rescue-ready at all times. He will lead record keeping and organization, ensure gear maintenance, and facilitate training. He is an employee of the Sheriff but takes the majority of his direction from Cody and the Board. On missions, Estes will no longer be in command or in the field. He will continue to provide mission support as needed.
