With deep roots in the community, Roger has spent much of his
life working tirelessly to help others. A lifelong resident of Cass
County, Roger and his wife of 33 years, Gerrilyn, raised their
three children while also operating successful businesses at the
same time. In addition to having been a Scout Master and
volunteer coach in youth sports, Roger has also served as the
president of Drexel, Missouri’s Chamber of Commerce, and as a
board member of Public Water Supply District #12.
Roger began his tenure with Cass County government in 2005
when he became an appraiser within the real estate division of
the Assessor’s office. Eventually, he rose to the rank of Chief
Appraiser, a position he was holding when current Missouri
Governor Mike Parsons appointed him in January 2019 as Cass
County Assessor.
Roger’s notable professional qualifications include specialized
coursework through the Missouri State Assessors Association,
the International Association of Assessing Officers, and
numerous real estate appraiser schools such as Lowman & Co.
National and Bobbitt and Co.
“As your Assessor, it is my job to assess the value of all real and
tangible personal property in Cass County, fairly and in
accordance with the laws of the State of Missouri. My staff and I
are committed to treating all taxpayers with respect, and to
providing the highest level of service.”
