The Stagetime Team

  Jackie Lee Stone
Producer/Event Planner

Jackie Lee graduated from the University of Minnesota with a degree in journalism, but well before graduation knew that she was drawn to the world of event production – the challenges it presents, the fast-paced (and sometimes stressful!) environments, the variety of work, the people and the fun! She spent the first part of her career working for the Saint Paul Winter Carnival, and returned to the Winter Carnival in 2003 to serve as the Manager of Operations for the iconic 2004 Ice Palace, which hosted nearly a million visitors in 3 weeks!

Jackie Lee spent the next part of her career managing corporate and non-profit events for Design Group, where her largest projects included the production of four Super Bowl XXXIX events in Jacksonville and the 4,000 person ASAE Convention in downtown Minneapolis. After the birth of her first child, Jackie Lee shifted exclusively to the non-profit world to become an integral part of the events and fundraising team at Children’s Cancer Research Fund. There, she managed the production of two key annual programs; leading committees, soliciting sponsorships, developing communication campaigns and managing event and show logistics. For Jackie Lee, as a working mother, it was really important to work for an organization that makes a difference in the lives of children – which CCRF does every day!

In 2011, Jackie Lee began her freelance career, and has spent the last two years balancing family and work in the best way possible – working from home! Her current projects include managing the University of Minnesota building at the State Fair; producing dedication, groundbreaking and grand opening events for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board; participating in the Target Back-to-College program as a bussing producer.

When Jackie Lee is not working, you will find her enjoying time outside with her family (hubby Dustin, and little Stones Elliot and Libbi), singing karaoke with friends, or possibly garage sale-ing with a cup of Caribou Coffee in hand!
