 Pat Jelinek Retires After 41 Years

On May 28, 2015, Regional Director Tom Melius, Deputy Regional Director Charlie Wooley and many others came together at the Regional Office to celebrate Pat Jelinek’s retirement. For the last 15 years, Pat has served as the Executive Assistant to the Regional Director and Deputy Regional Director. Her patience, helpfulness, attention to detail and sense of humor have been much appreciated through the years. In total, Pat has been at it for over 41 years!

Heading into retirement, Pat has her sights set on spending more time with her friends and family – including her 6 grandchildren and being outdoors. She is also looking forward to cooking, gardening and catching up on some good books. We thank Pat for all of her contributions and wish her all the best in retirement.
