Is it “Jackson” or “Jackson Hole”?
“Jackson” refers to the actual town of Jackson, which was incorporated in 1914. “Jackson Hole” refers to the entire valley area, including the communities of Wilson, Teton Village, Kelly, Moran, and Jackson.

The name references Davey Jackson, a beaver trapper of local fame, as well as a geologic feature called a hole, where the land continuously sinks due to plate tectonics. For many years, The Lexington’s home was referred to as “Jackson’s Hole” but, now, you’ll notice the old apostrophe has been dropped. So, both terms are accurate, depending on whether you are discussing the town or the valley area.

The Lexington at Jackson Hole Hotel & Suites has a convenient, center-of-everything location in downtown Jackson, Wyoming. Located just 1.5 blocks Jackson’s famous Town Square, guests are close to dining, shopping, entertainment, as well as wilderness adventures and outdoor recreation.

Meet The Staff

Elden Doloroso

Front Desk Team

Growing up in Southern California allowed me the opportunity to spend much of my time outdoors. And as a youngster, I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in the Boy Scouts of America taking monthly camping excursions. When not on trips with family or with the troop, I was always outside on my skateboard, BMX bicycle, climbing, surfing, or playing volleyball at the beach. You could say that it was hard to keep me indoors at all. After serving in the United States Navy as a mechanical engineer stationed in Little Creek, VA, and deployed in the Caribbean and Mediterranean seas for much of that time, I returned to Los Angeles to study Economics at California State University in Long Beach. I worked in several fields from operations management at a major retailer, commercial banking, investment banking, and then merchandising project management in the packaging industry, I pursued self-employment as a wellness advisor. My studies as an advisor of health and wellness brought me to the conclusion that living as close to nature as possible is the best way for human beings to live. So my wife and I sold most our possessions, to find work in our National Parks. We spent our first summer in Glacier National Park serving as volunteers in Bear Management. Since the majority of the park is closed during the winter months, we had to find employment elsewhere until much of the wildlife comes out of hibernation again in the spring. We serendipitously found our way to Jackson Hole and have been more than excited to discover this wonderful area. I spend most of my days off hiking in the Tetons, snowboarding at the resort, shooting my recurve bow at the local outfitters, letting go of the day at the yoga studio, then ending the day either cooking from scratch at home or enjoying one of the many great eateries that the town has to offer.

Billy & Leah Sandoval

Before settling in Jackson in December, Billy and Leah served as day counselors at a camp in Texas that caters to individuals with developmental disabilities. Leah has worked with cameras for a number of years and her passions include boarding, quality coffee, seeing new countries, and skydiving. Billy has been privileged to work and travel as a professional musician and chess instructor. They love to laugh, practice American Sign Language (ASL), and they look forward to the friendships and adventures Jackson Hole has to offer.

Eric Byan

Director of Sales

After my 1st mid-life crisis I moved to the Jackson area in 1992, (of course for the skiing)leaving my origin home, Baltimore, Maryland. Like so many others my plan was to stay in Jackson no more than a couple months. My First job was working for Flagg Ranch where I found a passion working in the hospitality industry, and the rest is history. From there I relocated to Key West, Fl for 6 years managing a small Bed & Breakfast but somehow always managing to find my way back to Jackson Hole. When I returned I was working at another fine hotel when I was asked if I would relocate to Bishop, CA. to manage The Creekside Inn, I remained in Bishop for 3-4 years but once again returned Jackson. By now I’m on my 2nd mid-life crisis and find I wanted to experience various other positions in hospitably i.e. bartender, waiter etc., after a year or so I was asked to manage The Flying Saddle Resort located in Alpine, WY in Star Valley South of Jackson. I remained there for one of my longest stilts 6+ years. Eventually accepting the Group Sales position at The Lexington at Jackson Hole.

Ed Krajsky

General Manager

I moved to the Jackson area in 1978 from Florida for a summer job and never left. I have worked for years inside both Yellowstone and Teton National Parks and I can give you a lot of ideas on nice hikes. My wife and I love Jackson Hole and the surrounding areas. And now that our son is in college and we are not driving all over the west for hockey games, we have more time to explore again. I love to sea kayak, hike, bike ride and climb when I get the chance to do it.

Adena Chernosky

Operations Manager

I began working for Tim & Diana Waycott in 2002 as a front desk agent at what was then known as the Trapper Inn. As the company grew, I took on more responsibility, and am now the Operations Manager. Originally from Pennsylvania, I learned to snowboard at Stratton, Vermont before moving “out west” to conquer bigger mountains. I spent two years in Bend, Oregon, but during a visit to Jackson Hole I knew she had found a home and relocated immediately. When I’m not working at The Lexington, I’m snowboarding, reporting the snow conditions for Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, blogging, playing Magic: The Gathering, podcasting, or wakeboarding. It’s a busy life, but someone has to live it!

John Sherwood

I have two teenage daughters and attended The University of Kentucky’s Business Information Systems program at Hopkinsville Community College. I am also an alumnus of the NOLS Wilderness Medicine Institute. When I moved here I quickly found myself so at home with the total outdoor lifestyle in Teton Valley that I stayed! From training/competing in Ironman distance Triathlon to Climbing, Skiing, Hunting and Scuba Diving; Jackson has it all. You’ll surely meet me during your visit as I am always out and about. Please allow me to help you make the most of your stay by sharing my knowledge of the area’s activities. I look forward to meeting you.

Armando Morales

Front Desk Manager

I Have been in the Teton valley for the last 17 years and started working for the Lexington Hotel in May 2011. I moved to the area back in 1996 with my wife. Since then my wife, my three kids and my self have been trying to enjoy all the outdoor activities that this beautiful area have to offer from skiing in the winter to hiking, climbing, in the summer. We love visiting Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks, in winter or summer its always fun to make that trip.

Kathleen McElfresh

Front Desk Team

I am a second generation Californian with a love of wandering and travel that started early, as a military family we moved around every few years. From California, I moved to Washington State and graduated from Central Washington University with a degree in Technical Drama and used that for many years. A few years ago I started working at Glacier National Park and then Moved to Grand Teton National Park on the first day that I arrived it felt like home and made the promise that whenever the view of the Tetons did not send a thrill through me that I would leave and so far that has not happened. While living here I have been able to experience the area to its fullest and still learn something new each day, indulged in my love of horseback riding and watch the seasons change something that was not easy in California. Best of all is that I am no longer spending long hours in busy rush hour traffic.

Patti Robertson

Front Desk Team

I was born and raised in a small town just south of Burlington, Vermont. After graduating college with a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education I worked in the Child Care profession for the next 12 years. Who knew 14 two-year-olds in one big room could be that much fun! I joined the Lexington Staff in March of 2011. Who knew meeting so many different people every day could be this much fun! I first stayed in the town of Jackson while driving from Alaska to Vermont. It was the halfway point and my friend had family here. I saw my first bear near Jackson on that trip. I love the small town where I grew up in VT so I knew moving to Jackson would be a perfect fit for me. The scenery and wildlife still amaze me even after living here for 10 years. Although the Winter can seem long and the Summer is always to short, Jackson is such a unique place and I love raising my daughter here. I enjoy talking to people from all over the world and hearing the stories and experiences they have had during their visit to Jackson, Yellowstone and the Grand Teton National Park. I like volunteering with The American Red Cross as a certified CPR and First Aid Instructor. I also enjoy hiking and rock climbing, but strangely with the 9 month winters we have I am not a skier or snowboarder.
