Brian Jackson - President & CEO

Brian has been serving seniors since 1996. As a Deputy Sheriff, he found himself going on welfare check calls for seniors and staying several hours to socialize with them just to be sure that they were okay.

In California, he previously served on the Rotary Club Board, formed partnerships with local non-profits to improve the services seniors were receiving in the community and founded an Aging Resource Center to bring senior resources to an underserved rural community.  ​

With his 19+ years of experience working with seniors, Brian has developed a keen understanding of the challenges seniors and their families face every day and the many options available for addressing those challenges. Brian is excited to bring his wealth of experience in senior care to the Olympic Peninsula. ​
