Jack came to Belardi/Ostroy with six years of fundraising experience as a list planner and manager working with environmental, progressive and animal rights organizations. Originally from St. Louis, Jack’s passion for charitable work was developed through Catholic Youth Organizations and his mother’s work with various international relief and legal aid services. He’s a Board member of Sacred Birthplace Foundation, an education and assistance organization that advocates for mothers’ choices in child birth, prenatal and postnatal care. A passionate writer himself, Jack’s worked with Oakland youth to help develop their writing skills. In his spare time Jack enjoys following the St. Louis Cardinals, attending Giants and A’s games, and hiking with the family through the various redwood groves in and around the Bay Area.
