OUR TEAM

Get to know your local SafeSplash Waukee team!

Jessica and Pete Koenig, Owners

Jess and Pete Koenig are the Owners of SafeSplash + SwimLabs Waukee. Jess is the General Manager and has a long swimming history. As a young competitive athlete, Jess was invited to participate in the USA Swimming Bronze Swim Camp at the Olympic Training Center. At the camp she had the opportunity to swim in the state-of-the-art “flume” where she had her strokes filmed. At the time, it was an experience not many had the opportunity to have. So, when she researched swim schools and learned that SwimLabs would make this opportunity available to so many more athletes, she was sold. She went on to swim in college at Truman State University where she was 6-time Division II National Champion and recipient of the Honda Female Athlete of the Year Award. Most recently, she completed the Tampa Bay Open Water Marathon with her husband and 4 other previous teammates.

Her husband, Pete also has a long history of swimming. Growing up, they went to many of the same swim meets, but officially met at Truman State University, where Pete also swam and competed at the NCAA Division II Championships. Together they have a son who swam competitively for several years and a daughter who currently competes.
