Jim Hunt closeup

Jim Hunt, the newest trustee of St. John’s Health, stands at the site of the new Jackson Hole Historical Society and Museum, a nonprofit he has devoted years to strengthening.

Jim Hunt has the makings of a textbook Republican: He’s from Texas, he’s devoted most of his life to working in finance and in his downtime he’s likely to be out hunting, fishing or golfing. That said, he’s coincidentally married to the chair of the Teton County Democratic Party, Maggie Hunt, and has been for almost 40 years.

Like a good husband, he said he’s “proud of [his wife’s] accomplishments,” but when asked where he stands politically, he paused.
