Tony Commendatore (email Council Member Commendatore) - Tony Commendatore is a native Californian who grew up in Los Altos, CA and was a frequent visitor to the North Tahoe area. Tony joined Alpine Meadows National Ski Patrol in 1991 and patrolled on weekends. While patrolling, he worked in a ski shop as a manager and boot fitter until realizing that it was hard to ski when you work in the retail/ski industry. That led to moving to the high-tech sector in the Bay Area and working as a Manufacturing Engineer. Tony and his wife, Krissy, found an opportunity to move to Truckee in 1997 and jumped on it. This led Tony to move to a new career in insurance. In May of 1999, Aegis Insurance Markets was born on the same day that Tony and Krissy were blessed with their twins, Jayden and Kassidy.
Tony’s involvement in the community has gone from 22 years at Alpine Meadows and as a Nevada County Sheriff’s Volunteer to coaching youth sports and participating in a number of local nonprofit foundations and business groups. Running Aegis Insurance Markets and employing local members of our community has given Tony a clear understanding of many of the needs of Truckee’s locals and businesses. Raising two kids in Truckee also gives him an understanding of local issues for our youth.
Tony earned his bachelor degree at San Jose State University with a major in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and a minor in Business.
You can often find Tony skiing, cycling, or riding his horses around the North Tahoe area.
