Duane Chad Tempel


Duane is one of the founders and co-owners of Night Owl Support Systems, LLC. Duane is a firm believer that each and every person should live as independently as possible, a belief which is exemplified through his work. Duane was instrumental in the development of the Sound Response Program at the University of Wisconsin Madison's Waisman Center. Duane began his career in 1980 working with children with disabilities at St. Francis School for Exceptional Children in Freeport, IL. That experience would shape him, nurturing his quest to work with people to live their best life. Not just for the day but assisting people with developing skills that would offer them the opportunity to reach new levels of independence. Duane and his wife Elizabeth call Wisconsin their home. He can often be found in Sun Prairie, WI playing Old Buzzard's Hockey League, kayaking, or bicycle riding. As a once-competitive swimmer, he can also be found playing water polo, swimming, or coaching in his spare time.
