Janet and Jerry Carspecken give to what they know best and believe in - and On With Life tops the list. The Carspeckens' first contact with On With Life was when Jerry became a board member in 2006. He was a retired Speech Language Pathologist and a friend suggested he would make an excellent board member. Jerry served on the On With Life, Inc. and Supportive Housing boards until 2011 and was president of the Supportive Housing Board from 2009 - 2010. Throughout Jerry's volunteer board service, the Carspeckens belief in On With Life's mission grew.
"Jerry and I saw, over the years, the impact the facility had on the lives of people who needed the services," Janet shared. "And we saw the reputation that On With Life had worldwide!"
Their belief in the leadership, staff and quality of service provided by the organization has led Janet and Jerry to donate to the On With Life Foundation on an annual basis since 2006. Through their will, a future gift from the Carspeckens will help sustain many programs for On With Life as well.
"We decided that after we had taken care of friends and family, we should donate the rest of our estate to helping to keep the future of On With Life's services alive and healthy," said Jerry.
