Helping to maintain the great outdoors

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Jeff Humpton has always been fond of the outdoors. His love of recreation is evident from his surfing days in Orange County, Calif., to his current job as parks superintendent for Los Alamos County.

Before moving to Los Alamos, Humpton owned his own landscaping business for 12 years.

But after realizing how stressful it was to run your own business, Humpton opted to work for the Orange County school district. “I wasn’t going home stressed all the time and I liked knowing there was a steady paycheck,” he said.

Humpton, originally from Huntington Beach, Calif., gave up big city life 13 years ago to move to Los Alamos with his wife of 21 years, Sandy and now-18-year-old daughter Rachael.

He said he decided to move because his parents and sister had moved to Los Alamos.

Moving to the Atomic City was not an easy transition for the Humptons.

“It was difficult. We left the Hill and went to Santa Fe or Albuquerque every weekend,” Humpton said. “But after about five years, we settled in. Now we go back to California and wonder how we ever lived there.”
