Clubhouse Staff

John "JJ" Johnson

General Manager: Club and Community

JJ oversees the entire operations of the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, Clubhouse, the Cliff Drysdale Tennis Courts, Swim and Fitness Center, as well as all member functions and events. The Clubhouse staff reports to JJ, which is a big responsibility, but you wouldn’t know it to talk with him. He is one of the most easy-going and engaging managers you’ll ever have the pleasure of working with. Married and a father of 2 boys, JJ was raised in Englewood, CO, and earned his B.A. from the University of Northern Colorado. Prior to Red Ledges, JJ spent over 20 years as a golf pro and manager. Most recently, JJ was Director of Golf and later General Manager of Shark’s Tooth Golf Club in Lake Powell, FL.

Daniel Thompson

Assistant General Manager, Food & Beverage Director

Many of us still know Daniel as “Chef”, but his promotion to Assistant GM was well-deserved, as he is the perfect fit after spending over 10 years at Red Ledges. When Daniel isn’t cooking a delicious meal and enjoying fine spirits, he loves to travel and enjoys international cuisine. His favorite trip was Japan and if he could re-visit anywhere he would hop on a flight to Madrid. We also learned that you probably wouldn’t win if you played Daniel in Trivial Pursuit, because he is a man that knows many random facts.

Stephanie Potempa

Activities Director

Stephanie Potempa uses her considerable skills and friendly energy to bring the best activities and events to Red Ledges. From wilderness guide to events planner to writer, this Utah Renaissance woman brings our community activities and events that make an engaging mountain lifestyle easy to embrace. After graduating from the University of North Carolina Wilmington, Stephanie worked a variety of positions including director of public relations for hotels, freelance writer, corporate accounts manager during the 2000 and 2002 Olympic Games, yoga instructor and wilderness guide. She shares her expertise and encouragement to lead members in a wide array of activities like skiing, snowshoeing, Nordic skiing, hiking, mountain biking, yoga, fitness and more.

Clark Norris

Executive Chef

Promoting Clark to the Executive Chef at Red Ledges was a no brainer when Daniel took a big leap into the Assistant General Manager position. Clark has over 30 years working as the Executive Chef at Deer Valley Resort, which is known for their delicious cuisine, before joining us three years ago at Red Ledges. Clark’s creative touch and attention to detail is easy to see, and taste, with all of his menu items. When Clark isn’t in the kitchen, you can find him alpine ski touring, fly fishing, golfing, and hiking.
