University of Colorado Regent Sue Sharkey has long been involved in leadership and business in the state and is a proud CU parent. She is the mother of three adult children, one of whom graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder; another now attends there.

A Republican, she was elected in 2010 to the CU Board of Regents to represent Colorado’s 4th Congressional District. Her six-year term ends in January 2017. Sharkey serves on the capital construction subcommittee and is the regent representative to the CU Foundation Board.

A resident of the 4th Congressional District since 1997, Sue and her husband, David Jordan, live in Windsor. Both belong to the board of the CU Parents Association; David is the current president.

Sue served as a delegate to the Republican National Convention in 2004 and 2008. Her other past leadership roles include president of the Larimer County Republican Women, executive board member of the Larimer County Republicans, member of the Larimer County CORE/Placement Board, Larimer County co-chair of the Women’s Coalition for Victory Campaign and a Cub Scout leader. In 2008, she was chosen to participate in the Leadership Program of the Rockies, which develops, strengthens and trains emerging leaders.

Raised in a military family, Sue lived in Taiwan, Germany, Washington, D.C., and other locales, where she experienced diverse cultures. She has considered Colorado home since her father retired in Colorado Springs, while Sue was in high school. Since then, she has lived along the Front Range in El Paso, Douglas and Larimer counties.

She gained early work experience in her parents’ retail store in Colorado Springs. Sue learned the family business and eventually took on management of a store. When the business was sold, Sue went to work for the investigative division of the El Paso County District Attorney’s Office. She later embarked on a marketing and public relations career in banking.
