Jordan DeGraaf - General Manager

Jordan and his wife Kenzie moved to the Grand Rapids areas from Denver last year. Jordan's job is to ensure that every one of our customers has a fantastic experience storing with us. He also does a few other things like marketing, roofing, website design, and snowplowing in the winter. He's usually around, but if you don't find him in the office he is probably surfing in Lake Michigan or mountain biking in the woods somewhere.


Roger DeGraaf - Founder  

Roger has been around since the beginning. He's a cheerful guy full of energy, wisdom and conversation. His two hands helped build and expand our first storage site into what Rockford Self Storage is today. Sadly, he's not in the office everyday now, but it's always a pleasant surprise when he and his wife Pokey stop by. In his down time, he enjoys bird watching and spending time with his big family. 


Mike DeGraaf - Founder  

Mike is the visionary behind Rockford Self Storage. His "go-getter" mentality and his determination to see a plan come together is how Rockford Self Storage has continued to grow over the years to serve more and more of the Rockford community. When he's not hard at work, he's usually fleeing to warmer weather. He enjoys scuba diving, working on cars, and going boating with friends.
