Chief Operating Officer
Jeff joined the Y in 2017 and oversees all programs and operations at the Two Rivers YMCA, Rock Island YMCA, and Bass Street YMCA branches. He has a Master’s Degree in Psychology and brings 15 years of non-profit experience serving the Quad Cities. Jeff is passionate about community service and encouraging kids to become strong local leaders. He believes the best way to “teach” kids is to inspire them to explore and develop their own passions. This is best captured by Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. who said, “One’s mind is stretched by a new idea and will never shrink back to its former dimensions.” In his spare time, Jeff enjoys playing soccer, biking, kayaking, and going to the library with his family.
