Jaison L. John: A veteran of over a decade in Management Consulting, I enjoy working with people and ideas and am passionate about giving back to the community. That said, although new to this forum, I’ll be more than happy to use my skills/abilities to support the school and community in the best way possible. Plus, my children have been at St John 23 since we arrived in Canada and I’m a huge fan of the way things are run, so excited to be part of the change!
