The 2023 Gemuetlichkeit King and Queen are Glenn and Amber Fleming.
Glenn is the son of the late Guy Fleming and Dorothy Street of Jefferson. He grew up in Jefferson and is a 1993 graduate of Jefferson High School. He worked as a Union Electrician for 29 years and is currently a Project Manager for Westphal & Company. Glenn has been the president of the Jefferson Sno-Hawks for the last 20 years and is a volunteer coach for his son’s basketball, baseball, and football teams. Glenn served on the Jefferson School board from 2019-2022.
Amber is the daughter of David Becker of Jefferson and the late Shery Becker. Amber grew up in Jefferson, graduating from Jefferson High School in 2000. She went on to get her Bachelor’s degree in Communication Disorders from UW Milwaukee. She is currently a Certified Screen Specialist for Inclusa, a state-wide Managed Care Organization. Amber is a member of the West Elementary PTO (Parent-Teacher Organization) and enjoys volunteering her time at West school functions.
The Royal couple knew each other growing up through the Queen’s cousin but didn’t start dating until 2006. They married in 2012 at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Jefferson and have two sons, Bryce and Chase. Bryce is a 7th grader at Jefferson Middle School and Chase is a 3rd grader at West Elementary. Bryce plays baseball, football, basketball and is on the Jefferson Sportsman’s Youth Trap team. Chase plays baseball, football, basketball and soccer. In addition, Chase loves participating in the after-school clubs that are offered at West, such as Garden Club, STEM and Crochet Club.
The Royal couple enjoys spending their free time with family and friends, boating in the summer, snowmobiling in the winter, and watching Wisconsin sports year-round. Glenn and the boys enjoy hunting and fishing, but bow hunting is their true passion. The Fleming’s are members of St. Mark’s Lutheran church in Jefferson.
The Queen’s German heritage comes from both her paternal and maternal sides. Her paternal Great-Grandfather was born in Germany in 1875 and eventually migrated to the United States where he spent his life farming.
Her maternal Great-Grandfather and Great-Grandmother were also both born in Germany. Her maternal Great-Grandfather was born in Saxony Kingdom State in 1878. His family migrated to the U.S., landing in Philadelphia and eventually settling in Colby, Wisconsin, as dairy farmers. Her maternal Great-Grandmother was born in Coburg and Gotha Sachsen, Germany, in 1880, coming to the U.S. when she was two.
The King’s German heritage comes from his paternal side. His paternal Great-Great-Grandmother was born in 1850 in Luxembourg, Germany. His Great-Great Grandfather was born in 1837 in Prussia, Germany, migrating to the United States in 1858 and eventually settling near Freedom, Wisconsin. The King’s maternal side has Native American, Irish, English, Scottish and Polish roots.
The King and Queen would like to thank the picking crew, Jeff and Tiffany Schmidt, Jeff and Deb Hans, and Corby and Bethany Stallman for their friendship, guidance, and generosity the last few months. The Flemings are looking forward to representing Jefferson and the Gemuetlichkeit Days organization as this year’s King and Queen.
