About Dennis Doering

Dennis graduated from UMR with a bachelor’s degree in computer science in 1973.  He was a three-year starter at defensive end and a four-year letterman on the Miner football team, who earned all-conference honors in the MIAA.  In a newspaper article, assistant coach Joe Keeton was quoted as saying:  “Dennis has played there [defensive end] for four years and he just doesn’t make any mistakes.”  Upon graduation, Dennis began his career as a computer programmer/analyst with the Missouri Public Service Commission (PSC) and shortly thereafter joined the Missouri Supreme Court, Office of State Courts Administrator, as a systems analyst.  When an opportunity presented itself, he moved into the private sector working first at Modern Business Systems and then at its spin-off company, OMD Corporation, where he rose to Vice President of Software Development.  Soon after joining the staff at the PSC, Dennis was recruited to join the Jefferson City Football Officials Association.  He officiated at many area high school and collegiate football games in the MIAA for 37 years.  He was involved in youth sports in Jefferson City as a baseball, softball and soccer coach.  He is an active member of his church, serving as an elder.  Dennis currently works for Central Technology Services and enjoys fishing, traveling and spending time with family, especially his three young grandchildren.  He is married to Nancy Less Doering, also a graduate of UMR.  They have a daughter, Julie, and a son, Brad.  Brad was a pitcher on the 2003 National Champion Mules baseball team at the University of Central Missouri.
