We would be hard pressed to profile a harder working member of our club than Jerry Lebo. He has worked tirelessly for the success of NCBC.
Jerry was born in a small town in Indiana. He attended Purdue University and earned a PHD in Electrical Engineering. He later attended George Washington University in Washington D.C. and earned a Program Management Degree. After completion of his studies, he joined an Aerospace company on the West Coast and worked there for seven years.
He then took a position with the Department of Defense in a suburb of Washington D.C. He had several positions with the Department of Defense including engineering management. With the Department he was stationed in Holland for four years in a position of engineering communications.
He retired in 1994, and stayed in the D.C. area for three years, and then, with his wife Joanne, moved down here to Florida in 1997. Joanne passed away in 2010. Jerry and Joanne had two children who both reside in the D.C. area. Jerry is blessed with five grandchildren, ages 13 to 20. Outside of bridge his hobbies include a little golf, and he offers that he is politically active.
Jerry has been on our Board of Directors for six years, and has been President for five years. He is optimistic about the future of our club but recognizes that there will continue to be a turnover in membership, and offers that the club must be extremely active in recruiting and keeping new members. He wishes that more members would become active in volunteering for club activities and endeavors, but greatly appreciates those who have invested there time and effort.
Current and past board members, and certainly at least the more veteran members of our club, are greatly aware of the tremendous effort Jerry puts into making this club a continued success. Being President can be a thankless and difficult job, but Jerry handles it seamlessly. The club very much appreciates his efforts.
