Board of Directors Member Spotlight – David Jarman

David Jarman, Senior Vice President – Investments at Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC, has been a member of the Janus Board of Directors for over 20 years. David served as Board President and currently chairs the Board Advancement Committee.

Tell us about your professional background.

I have been in the financial industry for almost 35 years and currently with Wells Fargo Advisors, LLC since October 2010.

Are you a native Oregonian? If not, what brought you to the Northwest?

I was born and raised in the Northwest and would find it hard to leave because of all that the Northwest has to offer.

Why do you feel it’s important to invest in your community?

I was raised in a community that has given so much to me. I feel that investing in the same community is my way of giving back.

Are you involved with any other organization other than Janus?

I give the majority of my time to my commitment with Janus. Our daughter is currently a senior at Cleveland High School where I also volunteer my time and participate in activities. It has always been important to me to invest in our children’s schools.

What originally inspired you to join the Janus board?

I participated in the first golf tournament that Janus held to benefit the Buckman House. I was impressed with how the Buckman House was effectively helping young men in the community and wanted to be a part of it. David Striar was the program director at the time and invited me to join the board. I joined shortly after the first annual golf tournament.

What do you hope to accomplish by serving as a Janus board member?

I hope to continue the mission of providing services to enhance the quality of life for children, youth, and families in the community. I consider myself an “ambassador” for Janus. I spread the word and tell the Janus story when I can. Like most nonprofits, financial resources are tight and I want to keep building partnerships to continue the services that Janus provides to our community.

Why Janus?

Janus uses a limited budget to help a large amount of youth and families. For many of these kids, the alternative is jail and by providing rehabilitation services they are able to get back into society with far less cost to our community. I believe this is the best way to benefit both the youth and our community and am committed to helping this cause.

What extra-curricular activities do you enjoy when not working or volunteering?

I enjoy spending time with my family as well as skiing, fly fishing, golf and hiking.

Eighth Grader Organizes Race For Janus Youth

When 14-year-old Bella told her mother she wanted to organize her own “Family Fun Run” to benefit Janus Youth Programs, her mom thought, “Why don’t you just run in a race instead?” But Bella had a vision and a strong drive to organize the event herself, which she did on May 20th at the Wilson High School track. Every detail of the event—from garnering donations for swag items, applying for a grant to help offset costs, organizing a bake sale, to publicity—Bella planned with support from family and friends. The event was a big success and raised close to $1,000 for Janus.
