We bring together like-minded VETERANS AND VOLUNTEERS
FEED THE PEOPLE JAX, INC. OFFICERS
I'm a Disabled Marine Corps Veteran with a heart & passion for people. I have received honors as an Artist/Songwriter, Author, Caterer & numerous awards from the Extraordinary People's Awards winning the Survivors Award in 2020. I build everything on my personal relationship with God & the power of togetherness we can overcome all things.
I am an avid entrepreneur with over 35 years of leadership experience in the entertainment, finance and healthcare industries. Born and raised in Montego Bay, Jamaica, I migrated to the U.S. in the early 1980's. I carry with me a dream and vision of making Jamaica a better place for all. Still very surprised at the limited access of Caribbean music on local radio stations, so hoping to help make some positive deversified changes.
My love of people partnered with my love of technology has been evident in the various roles that I have held in Corporate America for over 35 years. Currently, I am a Test Engineer for an organization. I have a very diverse background within Corporate America; but the one underlying principle that has remained consistent has been “Servant Leadership”. Servant leadership creates an environment in which everyone feels respected, appreciated and valued. It has helped by “building community” in both my professional and personal life. It is the concept of “building community” that allowed me to birth Blessed Connexions which helps connect people and organizations to resources in their time of need.
I plan to serve Feed the People Jax Inc as a Servant Leader. I will support the vision with hard work, devotion, and love. I will work with the various leaders and staff to ensure my Administrative Assistant duties are fulfilled.
I am a highly experienced Mobility/ Transportation Manager with over 27 years of experience planning, managing, and optimizing all aspects of federal, commercial mobility, transportation programs, and logistics operations. I will use my knowledge and experience in logistics management to assist in the planning, scheduling, coordination, and flow of different events and activities. To ensure that the desired levels of delivered service, quality, and customer satisfaction are achieved at the lowest cost possible.
I will use my god-given talents to build, and foster relationships, that will help increase Feed The People Jax's capacity to help veterans, the increasing homeless community in Jacksonville and beyond.
My name is Sharon Diederich and I have 38 years in street ministry. Through this experience I have gained many resources to assist those who need it most. I am able to connect people with medical care, insurances and assist them in obtaining education and employment. With the many connections I have made nationally through my ministry Gutter 2 Glory, I have the resourses needed to assist with public relations and fundraising as well.
I can and do provide needed essentials for Feed The People JAX. And do the same in Spartanburg South Carolina . With the strength and knowledge God provides, we can take the most broken people and help them receive Gods grace in their situations.
It is with great pleasure to be asked to be the outreach coordinator. I've dedicated over 20 years in the community feeding clothing and support and community initiatives. My experience with the community includes but not limited to Courtney and outreach events to feed the homeless. Supply Thanksgiving meals to local families yearly, oversaw clothing giveaway drives. I have a passion for people & families that are facing brokenness, uncertainty, & homelessness. I'm excited for the opportunity to serve the greater Jacksonville Florida & surrounding counties with this organization.
The strategic focus is research, development and planning. Overseeing the marketing department will require me to evaluate and develop market strategies so that plans can be generated and then utilized through every avenue available to develop and promote the Non-Profit services Feed The People Jax, Inc. offers. . The application of these specific plans under careful coordinated efforts are to execute them effectually within the organization internally as well as externally. As an ordained Minister, my first love is God and His people. As an Entrepreneur since I was 13 years old, through the years I have acquired a vast full of knowledge in the understanding of product and service development and market strategies. My background is in Management, sales, service and marketing in various businesses which includes retail, family owned, as well as my own.
