John Jackson has been a valuable member of the Odyssey Showcase Board since 2005. He has decided to retire after a long and productive volunteer career.
Prior to coming to Ottawa, he began his accounting career in Montreal, where he did charity work for a number of organizations.
He has always believed in giving back to the community.
In addition to contributing to our Board, John has been an active volunteer throughout the arts community and beyond.
John has been an avid volunteer within the Ottawa community. His volunteer work includes involvement with the Jewish Family Services, The Ottawa International Jazz Festival, One Art Gallery, to name a few. John’s philosophy is simple. In humanity there is only us, there is no them. He believes in helping others and giving back to the community.
We will miss his passion for the arts, especially music, and his invaluable financial knowledge and experience.
Everyone involved in Odyssey Showcase greatly appreciated his contributions and we will miss his guidance.
We wish John good health and happiness as he moves forward.
