Undersheriff to retire later this week

MARQUETTE — After nearly four decades of public service, one law enforcement officer is calling it a career.

Marquette County Undersheriff Jack Schneider will retire on Thursday. Schneider has spent the last 15 years as the Marquette County Undersheriff. Schneider served in the U.S. Coast Guard and he is a Vietnam War Veteran.

As a result of Schneider’s retirement, Sheriff Mike Lovelace has hired Michael Klein to be the new Undersheriff. Klein is currently a sergeant with NMU Public Safety.

Klein will be sworn in as Undersheriff this Thursday at the Marquette County Sheriff’s Office.
