Rebecca Cooke is a small business owner and nonprofit leader who has focused her career on building community and serving others. Born and raised on an Eau Claire dairy farm and appointed by Governor Tony Evers to the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation, Rebecca knows the economic and social challenges facing the small towns and rural communities for which she’s fiercely advocated for, from the kitchen table to the board room.
The Cooke family settled in the Independence area of newly-formed Buffalo County in 1856 and began generations of working Wisconsin land and serving their community and country. Early patriarch Chauncey Cooke was an abolitionist who joined the Union Army at 16 years old and fought in the Civil War. Those values of service run strong through Rebecca’s family as ancestors served America in both World Wars, her grandfather was a Marine in Korea before coming home to work a union job in Eau Claire’s paper mill, and her father served as a medic at Walter Reed Hospital, caring for wounded soldiers returning from Vietnam. Her brother continued that tradition, serving in the Navy before returning home to farm in Eau Claire and ultimately joining the Madison Fire Department.
