The Founder

Brother Mike Wilmot S.J. is a life-long member of the Omaha community who taught and coached for many years at Creighton Prep. In 1994, when he returned from serving Sudanese refugees in northern Uganda, Br. Wilmot began working with a former Creighton Prep student to help construct the Jesuit Middle School of Omaha. During this time Br. Wilmot felt called to continue his work and help lower-income members of the North Omaha community realize the dream of home ownership. Shortly after, Gesu Housing Inc. was founded.
