Wausau School District

Mrs. Truax (pronounced Tru-ax)

Thanks for taking time to swing by my ePortfolio page.

My name is Jess Truax.  I've taught in the Wausau School District since 2002.  I teach both Health and Physical Education at Wausau East High School.  Throughout the years I have coached basketball, volleyball, and track at the high school and middle school level.  I am also a Key Club Co-Advisor.  I attended Wright State University in Dayton Ohio for my undergraduate degree, K-12 Health and Physical Education with an emphasis in Sports Medicine.  I received my masters degree in Techonology Education in 2008 from Marian University.

I am married and have three children.  As a family we love to be active.  We enjoy geocaching, camping, biking, gardening, outdoor activites, kitchen dancing, and just about any sport as a family.  

I am extemely passionate about Health and Physical Education.  Teaching teens to take care of their body and mind is essential to them becoming happy and successful young adults.  I hope through my interactions and lessons with students, they will first know that I care about them as people and in turn see me as a trustworthy, positive role model.   Secondly, I hope they gain valuable insight on health skills and their application to real life as they pursue an active lifestyle.

Thoughout the day, you can find me in the gym, Health and YAM room (E109), or my office F125 (girls locker room).  


You can reach me via email [email protected] or (715) 261-0650 ext 23210.  

Email is the best way to reach me for a quick response since I am rarely at my desk during the school day.


I look forward to meeting you!

Yours in education,


Jess Truax
