Nathan was born June 24, 1975 in Graceville to Dale and Debra Hausmann. He was the oldest of four children. In 1980, Nathan’s family moved to Staples. Growing up, Nathan was active in sports, including baseball, track, football and basketball. He spent many Sunday afternoons in the gym shooting hoops with his dad and sisters. Nathan graduated from Staples-Motley High School in 1993 and moved to Fargo, attending college at NDSU. While still a student at NDSU, he became manager at the Dilworth Dairy Queen. In 1999, Nathan took a position at First National Bank in Dilworth. He worked his way from teller to Assistant Vice President. In 2012, First National Bank merged with Bell Bank and Nathan continued his career in banking. Nathan spent the last five years working in the Retail Underwriting Department. 

While managing the Dairy Queen in Dilworth, Nathan met his future wife, Laura, when he hired her as an employee. They began dating in 1997 and were married on August 11, 2001 making  their home in Moorhead. Together, they welcomed two children, a daughter, Abigail (Abby) and a son, Drew. Family was very important to Nathan and his children were his proudest accomplishments. He loved his children more than anything and was involved in all aspects of their life. He spent many hours coaching basketball, soccer and t-ball, was involved in cub scouts, playing video games, watching dance recitals, theater performances and snuggling. He loved to joke and tease his kids just to hear them laugh and according to them, gave the best hugs in the whole world. 

In his free time, Nathan enjoyed watching and cheering for the Minnesota Vikings, the Minnesota Twins and the NDSU Bison. He looked forward to his annual golf trip to Florida and tried to golf as much as possible. He loved watching reality TV, especially Survivor, Big Brother and the Food Network. He loved hunting season and spending time at the deer shack with his dad, uncles and cousins. He was looking forward to the time when Drew was able to go sit with him and hunt.
