Serving the West Michigan area
Dan has been serving the schools in the West Michigan area since February of 2016. He enjoys bringing unique views and ideas that help staffs learn that yearbook is a very REAL WORLD class, and that they leave a little more prepared for what they will face in the future. He also strives to provide unparalleled service and quality to all of his schools, through his desire to be the best possible resource for his advisers, staffs and schools.
Dan lives in Allendale, MI with his wife, Betsy, and his son, Koen. He loves spending time with his family when not working on yearbook pages.
They are exceptional!
Being in my eighth year as an adviser, I feel confident stating, Jostens is an excellent company. However, the best part of Jostens is the Mid-West Jostens Team including Dan Bussis, Lisa Bussell, and Paul Bussell. They are exceptional! Their honesty, work ethic, and extensive experience built my implicit trust in them. Their genuine desire to help and support far outweighs anything I ever anticipated from a yearbook publisher.
