Biography

DeeDee Jonrowe, 60, 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, “Participating in the Iditarod has become my life’s passion. I begin training the day my pups are born, with my focus to provide each of my dogs a long, safe and successful career. I have helped to develop state-of-the-art nutrition, sports therapy, and training plans, working year around to develop a well-rounded life style for my dogs. In addition, it is my desire to honor God in my racing and daily life, encouraging young people to follow after their dreams.” DeeDee is a member of the Big Lake Baptist Church and the Willow Running Club. She says in her spare time she enjoys trail running, mountain biking, triathlons, pure bred Labradors, Pekingese rescue and gardening. DeeDee is married to Mike, secretary of the Iditarod’s Board of Directors.
