Jason comes to Red Oak by way of New England where he cut his teeth as a beat writer for the University of Nebraska women’s basketball team after graduating from the University of Nebraska in 1995. Jason brings a varied and diverse career to the team at the Y from being a sportscaster/editor for Sports 1490 in Omaha to program manager for KBLZ-Omaha and as winner’s circle cameraman at Aksraben racetrack. “I’m very honored and blessed to work for such a great place and in such a great community. We have such a great facility filled with some of the best people you’ll ever meet.” Jason enjoys following the New England Patriots, Boston Bruins and the Huskers as well as spending time with his daughter Cassie.
Serving your YMCA since 1995
Nick has been a partner of the Y movement since 1986. He began his career in Fremont, NE and has served Y members in TX, MI and IA. Nick has enjoyed watching our YMCA grow from the storefront facility it once was, into a full facility that now offers hundreds of programs annually. Nick especially values the relationships developed at the Y, and people like his wife Nancy who has been a committed YMCA volunteer and former Y Board of Director’s President. “It’s all about relationships and involvement in the community and giving back. Without our staff, members, donors, volunteers, participants and guests, our Y would not be able to reach our goals for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. The YMCA can truly bring people together from all walks of life.”
John started as a Y volunteer in youth sports when the Y first opened in 1995 and has transitioned from committee member to employee. John says that the best part of the job is seeing preschool age children mature into responsible young adults. He also gets a kick out of it being called “coach” by past program participants. In his time away from the many separate responsibilities he takes on at the Y, he enjoys his time officiating HS basketball, following his children’s activities and being active with other community groups.
