Committeeman William J. Hauser
was born in St. Paul, MN, and grew up in Washington Township, Gloucester
County, NJ. He graduated from Washington Township High School, and attended
Rutgers University on an Air Force ROTC scholarship. During his college
years he moved to California where he graduated from California State
University, San Marcos. William joined the United States Army Reserves in
2003 and was headquartered in South El Monte, CA.
Having lived in California for almost 11 years, job opportunities and the
desire to be closer to family brought him back to NJ in 2008.
William is currently a High School Social Studies teacher at a charter
school in Hackensack, teaching U.S. History, Advanced Placement U.S.
Government and Politics, and Sociology. He is very involved in
extracurricular activities and serves as the Senior Class Advisor and a
coach in the College Readiness Program where he works to ensure students
are fully prepared to submit their college applications and get the
opportunity to visit various campuses across the country. He also
coaches the Varsity Girls Soccer team, Varsity Boys & Girls Bowling
team, and is the Head coach for both Boys & Girls Track teams.
William married his wife Diane in 2012, and began their search for their
first home. They chose Rochelle Park for its proximity to New York City,
but also for the safe, small town feel. They were sold on the charm of
their house on Passaic Street and made it their home in 2013. Never one
to stay idle, after being in town for a short while, William joined the
Rochelle Park Volunteer Fire Department. Being community minded, he
decided to run for Township Committee and was elected Committeeman in
the 2015 election.
As an educator, William truly believes in the idea that actions speak
louder than words. As a Committeeman, he is committed to making sure
that the people of the Rochelle Park can feel confident that they are
being heard and served as efficiently and as transparently as possible,
and encourages an open line of communication with community members.
