Dennis has worked in the accounting field for 25+ years, working as a Staff Accountant, Senior Accountant, Cost Accountant, Director of Operations, & Controller/CFO roles. During his time, he was blessed to work with the Medina County branch of JOGS. Over the years, he has developed a deep desire to help kids & young adults who had not found their way in life, either via College, Trade School, or a career.

He & his wife, Shelley, have been active foster parents, which has resulted in the adoption of a 17 year old girl. They are currently fostering to adopt a 9 year old girl, who has been in their care for more than a year.

As a member of Anchor Baptist Church, in Massillon, OH, Dennis holds fast to his belief that Christ has called he & his wife to help kiddos where they can. This calling has been reinforced with the working relationship with the JOGS team of the last few years.
