Jesse Stilwagen, Director of Religious Affairs

My name is Jesse and I am the Director Of Religious Affairs for the International Asatru Foundation. My path in heathenry began roughly four years ago when I first answered the call of the Gods after a period of aimless wandering in my life. I am originally from NY state and currently reside in TN with my my wife and 3 fur babies :).

You may recognize my visage from the Midgard Musings page and YouTube channel (, and I am thrilled and excited to further serve the Heathen community in this role in the IAF. I am a Vitki, student of the runes, and have experienced strong spiritual pulls to them since devoting my life to this path years ago. I was raised in a devoted christian household, and after a time of indecisiveness, found that the path of Germanic Paganism was what felt like “home” to me.

If you wish to contact me, please feel free to email me at and I will be happy to follow up with you at my earliest convenience. Thank you for your support, and may your path be filled with love and support from you Kindred, Tribe, and Folk around you!
