Dave Trageser has probably provided the city and schools of Bainbridge Island with more money than anyone else the past decade.
Well, not him, but the company he works for – D.A. Davidson & Co. of Seattle. Trageser is a senior vice president of the finance firm that works with the city and school district.
Trageser and his wife, Sharon, have lived on Bainbridge Island for 30 years. They have raised three girls – Lauren and twins Haley and Hannah – who all graduated from Bainbridge High School. Trageser likes to play tennis at the Bainbridge Athletic Club while Sharon is a Master Gardener and also has worked with Operation Smile, which does cleft palate surgeries on children worldwide for those in need.
