Meet the Officers of the Lodge

Jefferson County Lodge has eleven elected and appointed officers in total. Below are the three principal officers -- the Worshipful Master, Senior and Junior Wardens -- and the Treasurer and Secretary of the Lodge.

Jim Grenz - Headshot.jpg


Worshipful Master

Jim Grenz was born in Waukesha, Wisconsin. He lived in Hartland, Waukesha, and Sussex in Wisconsin, along with a few years in Dacono, Colorado, until moving to Delafield, Wisconsin, in 1987. Jim attended and graduated from the Kettle Moraine School District in Wales, Wisconsin. He attended the University of Wisconsin Madison until transferring to Milwaukee Area Technical College to persue the family business. He graduated with Honors in 1999 with both an Associate degree and Technical diploma in HVAC and Refrigeration technology.

Jim married his high school sweetheart, Shauna, in 1999, and they have two children, a son and a daughter. He has lived in the Johnson Creek and Watertown area for the last 16 years. He owns and runs with his father Grenz Service Company, a highly successful 5-star HVAC and refrigeration company in Delafield. Jim strives for three things every day to be successful: treat others as you want to be treated in business and in life, learn at least one thing each day to make it successful, and don’t become complacent (anyone can be replaced).
Jim is also a member of Tri-County Chapter #11 Royal Arch Masonry (RAM). Jim’s Masonic journey may have started just three years ago, but it took root as a kid. His grandfather, Samuel Lapp, was an active Mason in Milwaukee and Missouri during Jim’s younger days. The Shriner circus was a staple every year and implanted a desire for knowledge of what his grandfather found in Masonry. The sky is the limit as long as one dares to dream and strive to achieve it.

Senior Warden

Michael began his masonic journey in 2019 at the Jefferson County Lodge #9. He was born in Milwaukee, and raised in Sussex, WI. He grew up a multi-sport athlete and a multi-instrument musician. He moved to South Carolina to earn his degrees in education and English. While there, his career path took an unusual turn after being hired as a radio DJ in Myrtle Beach, SC. For several years, he could be heard on the airwaves during the day, then you could dance to hottest club tracks at the biggest clubs in Myrtle Beach OR see him play with his band, either solo or opening up for national acts as they toured through the area.

After starting a family, he chose to revert back to his original vocation -- teaching. He taught for two years at Myrtle Beach High School before moving back to Wisconsin so that his two children could be raised around extended family. He taught in Milwaukee Public schools for several years, and again played with bands in the Milwaukee area. He also found time on the weekends to get back into radio, working at 103.7 Kiss FM for almost a decade, and coached high school baseball and football. 

In 2015, he started his own business called “Vocal-Pro Voice Talent,” doing voiceovers and voice acting for anything from YouTube videos to video game characters to voice messaging systems. He also still teaches English at a military academy, coaches tennis, plays softball in the summer, and has continued singing and playing guitar. His current group, “The Kingfish Band,” can be seen throughout the midwest at festivals and other concerts throughout the year.  

Michael currently resides in Watertown, WI, and is a member of both York Rite and Scottish Rite bodies. His favorite part of masonry is traveling to new lodges and seeing the craft at work and history first-hand.

Bradley A. Behlke.jpg


Junior Warden

Bradley Behlke was born and raised in Watertown, WI. He attended UW Madison where he graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree. While at Madison, Brad joined the crew team and followed that sport to Philadelphia for two summers to compete at an international level.

Brad pursued a career in Service and Application Engineering with several Original Equipment Manufacturers in the HVAC&R field. He is currently the Applications Engineering Manager with Zero Zone in North Prairie, WI.

Brad married Heidi Behlke in 2014. They have three children between them and two grandchildren. They met when Brad’s daughter joined Job’s Daughters Bethel 45 of Plymouth, where Heidi was the Bethel Guardian. Heidi is active in Job’s Daughters and a member of Eastern Star in Port Washington. Brad and Heidi currently live in Dousman, WI.

Brad has a long family history of Masonic Involvement. He was the last Master Mason raised in Watertown Lodge #49, before it turned in its charter and joined Jefferson County Lodge #9 in 1998. Brad is a Past Master of Calumet Lodge #172 in New Holstein, WI. He joined the Scottish Rite Valley of Madison in the fall of 2023.

Paul Larson.jpg



Paul Larson was born in Wisconsin Rapids and raised in Green Bay and Wales, Wisconsin. After graduating from Kettle Moraine High School, Paul has spent his adult years living in southeastern Wisconsin and the past 15 years in Johnson Creek. Paul worked as a tool grinder, machinist, CNC programmer, quoting and inside sales manager, and as co-owner of a granite counter top manufacturer. Currently he is the Applications Specialist for Threading Tools at Guhring Inc. in Brookfield.

Paul didn't know much about Masonry before joining a regular Lodge in 2017, but was "curious" about the mystery that surrounded the craft. He has since found a community of Brothers and friends that are unlike anything he has had prior. "Making good men better is an accurate tag line for Freemasonry because the statement is 100% true!"

Paul is married to Kim Larson and they have five children between them. Kim is also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star and always willing to help with the Lodge.

Paul is an active member of several Masonic organizations in addition to Jefferson County Lodge #9: Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite Valley of Madison; DeMolay International, Godfrey de Boullion Chapter; and Martha Chapter #66 Order of the Eastern Star.

David Medici.jpg



David Medici was born in Toronto, Canada, where most of his family resides, but he grew up in California and British Columbia. He obtained his degree in Business Administration at California State University, Long Beach, and has been a business and technology professional for nearly 30 years. While he and his wife, Stacy, reside in Whitewater, Wisconsin, he has two sons living in Colorado. He has a wide array of interests including ethical philosophy, theology, constitutional law, and political theory, and when he vacations he prefers to get away from the city to a quiet rented cottage, preferably on a lake, free from demands and where time is his own.

David's father was a Mason, as were his father's friends, and it was from those men that he first learned about Masonry. As a young man, he saw how his father and other Masons enjoyed camaraderie and how each strove to be a man of character that others could respect and look to as an example in good times and bad. It was those memories, and a desire to find friendship with everyday men who were fun and admirable, that led him to become a Mason in 2013. He found what he was looking for, and it is one of the most important aspects of his life.
