Thank you Jackie

Lisbeth Garces and the JCO Board want to say Thank you! Jackie for your 5 years of dedicated service to Juan Carlos Organization.

Jacqueline Hanson has served as Chair of the JCO Board for the past six years. Her skills were key in the establishment of Juan Carlos Organization as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit. Her skills were instrumental in establishing and supporting programs for those with special needs within the community. Jackie's strong vision and commitment contributed to JCO's growth, through press releases, fundraisers, grants, donations, and a variety of events.

We understand the reasons for her departure and are happy for her as she will get to spend more time with her grandchildren. We expect to see her around occasionally, but she will be missed. Thank you Jackie for all you have done.

So along with the Zumba┬« Inclusive, Zumba Gold┬«, and "Sit n Fit" classes, are the Dance Therapy Exercise classes which started May 15, 2017 at North Clairemont Recreational Center and starting in June at Hilltop Recreational Center. Soon to come: specially tailored Parkinson's classes!
