Fond Farewell to Summer from JFS

Cathy Summer, the talented and dedicated leader of the Boulder office of Jewish Family Service of Colorado, has shared that she is leaving her position after eight extraordinary years. (Please see Cathy’s note below.)

As many of you know, Cathy has built an impressive legacy of leadership in Boulder, with an outstanding staff, continued growth of our programs, a terrific Advisory Committee, and a wonderful network of JFS donors, partners, and volunteers.

I want to personally acknowledge and thank Cathy for her enormous contributions to JFS.

We are excited about the future of the Boulder program as we look toward continued growth and impact with your valuable support and partnership.

We will be recruiting a new manager of our Boulder office and will keep you updated on our progress!

Warmest regards,

Shepard Nevel

A Fond Farewell

After eight tremendous years with Jewish Family Service, I’ve decided to step down from my position as the manager of the Boulder office. My time at JFS has been immensely rewarding and meaningful, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity I have had to serve this wonderful community.

Before I leave JFS on February 16, I’d like to thank you for the support you have given Boulder JFS. Whether you are, or have been, a client, staff member, volunteer, Advisory Committee member, or donor, you have played an important role in the growth of JFS. Your contributions and involvement have enabled Boulder JFS to triple in size to provide more assistance to more vulnerable members of our community. Because of you, Boulder JFS is impacting more lives than ever before.

Thank you for believing in JFS, for saying yes in so many ways, and for showing up with your time, treasure, and grit. I deeply value the connections I have made with so many of you in Boulder and beyond, and hope that our paths will continue to intersect in the future.

Please join me in continuing to support the growth and great work of JFS.

With gratitude,

Cathy Summer

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound III," because I'm a smart Cookie, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
