Jeff Stout


Jeff is currently the President of North Star Air, based in Thunder Bay. Despite being born and raised in Chicago, IL, Jeff’s roots in Northern Ontario go back 20+ years with his family’s long-standing interest in the airline. Upon completing his degree in Business and Entrepreneurship and his Bachelor of Science, Business Administration from Babson College in Boston, Jeff moved up to Thunder Bay to fully engage in the airline. In his 7 years with North Star, Jeff has formed strong relationships with many Northern Ontario communities, and through North Star’s revenue-sharing agreements, has helped in providing over $5m in funds back to the communities in this time frame. Understanding the unique challenges faced in many Northern communities, and the expense of logistics in the North, Jeff brings a unique skill-set and perspective to the Mikinakoos Board.
