Welcome Jon Jutte

Hello, my name is Jonathan Jutte. I am very excited to be the most recent addition to the Environmental Health and Safety team. I will be working as a laboratory safety technician under Lee Stone. The position primarily involves inspecting various types of laboratories across campus to ensure that all laboratory personnel are working in both a safe manner and atmosphere. I look forward to applying my personal experience in this role as I begin a career with IUPUI.


I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, (Go Bengals!) and migrated to Bloomington, Indiana, in the summer of 2002 to attend Indiana University (Go Hoosiers!). It was here that I earned my Bachelors of Science in Biology as well as meeting my lovely wife, Kinsey. Kinsey is a stay at home mother by day and a Registered Nurse at night. She usually works 2-3 night shifts per week at Community Hospital in Anderson, Indiana, which allows us the opportunity for her to spend time with the children during the day. Together we share a wonderful home in McCordsville and three amazing children, Carson (3), Ella & Lila (1). In my free time I enjoy landscaping, solving crossword puzzles, playing basketball, watching Hoosiers basketball/Bengals football and spending time with my family. As a family we enjoy bike rides, fishing, and going to the playground.


Following graduation I began my professional career at Eli Lilly in downtown Indianapolis as a cell culture biologist and a microbiological assay technician. During my tenure with Eli Lilly I primarily worked with the HEK (Human Embryonic Kidney) cell line and ran various types of assays including cell, enzyme and Elisa based assays. This work required utilizing many different forms of automation as well as ensuring all work was performed aseptically in a sterile environment. My experience has helped me learn the importance of laboratory safety. I look forward to applying and extending my knowledge of laboratory safety in this new role. I am eager to begin this new chapter of my life and work with all of you in the future.
