Tell us a bit about what you appreciate about them as an RCB:

John tirelessly works for community organizations, leaders, and small business owners and entrepreneurs on the southwestern Oregon coast.

He has spent years cultivating relationships with local, statewide, and national partners and clients to provide the highest level of assistance….and he doesn’t stop there, he pushes the limits!

When he is not doing this, he is teaching the next generation of business leaders in his college
business, economics, and accounting classes.

And no matter how busy he is, he always finds time to meet with those asking him for help.

He inspired me regularly.

His current project in his hometown of Reedsport, has him merging his professional talents with his personal passion for helping the community that raised him to thrive while receiving funds to put necessary resources in place.
