Speaker: Chris Jacobson
Introduced by: Jamie Nance
Jamie Nance has known Chris for almost 20 years. They were on K9 and motor units together. Chris retired from Lodi as the Police Captain.
Chris Jacobson – Operation Enduring Warrior
Chris talked about the organization whose mission is to honor, empower, and motivate our nation’s wounded military and law enforcement veterans through physical, mental, and emotional rehabilitation.
They have programs to help participants overcome adversity and hardship through innovation, team-work, and perseverance. This ultimately enables the lives of their wounded military and public service veterans to go in directions they may have once thought were impossible.
They cheer each other and participate in challenging activities, races, and obstacle courses like Spartan. By accomplishing these physically and mentally challenging activities, participants get over their stresses without the need for dependency on medications.
Their families have attested that they do much better after becoming a part of this organization and participating in the activities with the members. They take on other challenges like mountain climbing and keep trying until they finish it. Some of the members have also taken up sky diving and once they get trained, they help train other new members who are interested.
The organization helps by funding for the travel and the costs associated with these endeavors. The value this membership has provided to these men and women is much greater than any cost required.
A $50 contribution to Read to Me, Stockton was made in the speakers name as well as donating a signed book to Spanos Elementary AND some fine wine and glasses.
At various times in his life Tim has been known as Mister Vacation, The Fixologist and Just Plain Tim. He’s been an ardent entrepreneur since 1973 and likes the challenge of starting new businesses and exploring new possibilities.
He and his wife Susan, herself a Past President and Area 9 Assistant Governor from the Rotary Club of Oakhurst Sierra, live in Ahwahnee with their two dogs, two cats and lots of wild critters. They have four grown children and three amazing grand kids, Parker (9yrs.), Oliver (3yrs.) and Paloma (3yrs.+ 45 minutes)
An engaged Rotarian of the Oakhurst Sierra Sunrise Club for ten years Tim sees his professional attributes serving him well on the journey as District 5220 Governor for 2021/2022. Tim knows that we are entering one of the most exciting and challenging times for Rotary, a time when we must be creative and adaptive, a time when we must be engaging and inclusive and a time to increase the public’s knowledge of who we are and what we do.
His work with Rotarians in Haiti and Central America has shown him first hand the difference that Rotary makes in the world. Tim honors the 100+ year traditions of Rotary and embraces the next generation of Rotarians that are creating new, diverse opportunities to serve their communities.
According to Tim, “The world needs what Rotary offers and I look forward to engaging all Rotarians in our mission of service above self. Give me a call, 559.283.4731. Let’s get busy making a difference!”
