Ken has been with JA since 2009 and provides guidance and assistance at JA City. Ken graduated from Northwestern University with a BS in Chemical Engineering. His 40 year business career included both domestic and international sales experiences. Ken understands the importance of introducing financial and business concepts at an early age. Through the JA City program, he is constantly amazed at how quickly the student participants apply their in-school JA training and take over the city and run it, making decisions and providing direction for each of their businesses.
His daughter is a 5th grade teacher in the Salt Lake area and is an active supporter of JA City as it directly relates to her school curriculum. JA City is as exciting and fun to Ken as it is to the students.
