Biography

DeeDee Jonrowe, 61, was born in Frankfort Germany while her father was in the military. The family moved to Alaska in 1971 where her dad was stationed at Ft. Richardson. DeeDee has a B.S. degree in Biological Sciences and Renewable Resources and now lists her occupation as kennel owner and dog racer. She began mushing in 1979 when she was living in Bethel and her mother was excited about the early Iditarod races. She says, “This will be my 33rd Iditarod start. My dogs are my life’s passion, and I consider it a privilege to travel and compete with them through God’s most beautiful country. I have had many successes and failures on the trail but am always grateful. It is a blessing to have a life dedicated to my family, my dogs and true adventure. The Iditarod race participants, vets, volunteers and staff have become my extended family, however dysfunctional we may be at times. I dearly love them all. My team represents the very best of the 35 years of breeding, and I am excited to be with them on the trail in 2015.” DeeDee is a member of the Big Lake Baptist Church, the Willow Running Club and Sunrise Rotary. She enjoys playing softball and motivation speaking in her spare time. She also enjoys her Pekingnese and raising Labrador Retrievers. DeeDee is married to Mike, secretary of the Iditarod’s Board of Directors.
