Joe Kittelberger

Josef Kittelberger is a '20 Chemistry graduate of Stevenson. He returned to SU this past May for graduation and everyone loved seeing him and hearing about his very exciting job: Joe is utilizing his chemistry degree in the candy industry! After graduation, Joe obtained a position at Hybrid Confections, the sister company of Enstrom Candies, a four-generation family-owned candy company in Grand Junction, Colorado, known for its delicious toffees and confections. Joe is involved in their new project: gummy manufacture, including cannabidiol (CBD) gummies. To quote Joe, “Working in the candy business is a sweet gig!”

Next in the series of what chemistry faculty did this summer is Professor Tim Dwyer's trip to Colorado in July.  You may already know that Dr. Dwyer is originally from Colorado and that most of his extended family still lives there. Seeing his family was overdue because of Covid, and he was able to be present for his dad's 80th birthday celebration.

Dr. Dwyer took two of his kids with him on this trip. If you've ever had Dr. Dwyer as a professor, it's likely you know all three of his kids' (and his pets'!) names. They all enjoyed time with their family, hiking in Red Rocks, rock climbing and took in a Colorado Rapids soccer game together.

Next in the series on what chemistry professors are up to this summer is Professor Tracey Mason. Dr. Mason took a road trip with a friend to Eau Claire Wisconsin in July. The trip was made to celebrate the marriage of a friend who's party had already been postponed once due to Covid. On the way back she stopped in Chicago to visit Millennium Park and the Navy Pier. The forest fires out west made the air thick over the skyline.
