Jan R. Paulson received an MPA from BYU Marriott in 1981. Following graduation, Paulson received a job offer from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), where he worked for ten and a half years. He then switched careers and began working in project management for Electronic Data Systems (EDS).

After the recession hit in 2008, Paulson decided to go back to the FDIC where he remained until his retirement in October 2021. Jan and his wife Susan have recently accepted a call as service missionaries, managing the Bishops’ Storehouse in the Dallas, Texas area. In addition to his successful career, Paulson notes that his greatest accomplishment has been marrying well. Jan and Susan have four wonderful children and thirteen grandchildren. The Paulsons reside in Flower Mound, Texas.
