Jeff Startzman, assistant director of our Child Support Division, recently was named Hamilton County’s 2009 Child Support Hero, following in the legacy of Sheriff Simon Leis, former County Recorder Rebecca Groppe and others. He has spent most of his career involved in the child support field, and for the past few years has led our collection efforts here.
Jeff, who is retiring in September, has been very innovative, instituting programs such as prison collections, personal liens and private online chats to help parents get child support answers. We will miss him as he moves on to retirement and, hopefully, relaxation.
