- Not to be confused with Chris Traeger.
Chris is an MRI technician who works at Pawnee Diagnostic Imaging. He went to the University of Wisconsin–Madison and supports the Badgers, the school's athletic teams. He also has a son named Nate.
He is set up on a date with Leslie Knope by Ann Perkins in the episode "The Set Up". After having dinner with Leslie, he offers to give her a free MRI. The two don't connect and part ways after one date.
It should be noted that while looking at Leslie's MRI results, Chris suggested that Leslie could bear triplets, a prediction that comes true later in the series.
