A 1996 Catawba graduate, Juergens earned a degree in physical education. After graduation, Juergens was an assistant tennis pro at the Robbie Smith Tennis Academy and the Cardinal Country Club. In 1999, he joined the Lawndale Swim & Tennis Club as the Director of Tennis.
Juergens moved to the Ridgewood Swim & Tennis Club as Director of Tennis in 2000 and became Co-Manager in 2003 and General Manager in 2006. Juergens directed overall facility operations and tennis programs for a club membership of about 400 families.

Juergens played four years at Catawba, going 48-25 in singles action and adding another 30 wins in doubles. His 19 wins as a senior was a school record at the time and still stands as the sixth-best total for singles wins in a season.
