Jack was born in a small village outside of Canton China. He, along with his family, immigrated to Anacortes in 1989.  They worked hard as a family to learn the American way and eventually started their own family business.  Jack and his family have successfully owned and operated three restaurants since 1999.  Jack learned how to work in restaurants all throughout high school,  and continued his hard work being a fisherman in Dutch Harbor, Alaska. As a resident of Whidbey Island since 1999, Jack has consistently influenced the community by being a leader.  A devout Rotarian since 2008, he became President of the Rotary Club of South Whidbey in 2014, also holding various board positions throughout his time with the club.  He spearheaded a fundraising wine club for the organization, and is very involved with the committee that plans the Rotary’s Annual Holiday Wine Tasting fundraiser. Jack has helped raise over a hundred thousand dollars for the community’s benefit and improvement.

In his spare time, Jack enjoys golf, basketball, and spending time with his friends and loved ones, especially his son, Jacob.

 Ed and his wife Chris retired after 39 years in Southern California in 2004. He is currently the President/Owner of HALCO Management Systems, a successful industry consulting firm located in Langley on Whidbey Island where he and his wife reside. After his retirement as a licensed manufacturing engineer and manufacturing industry executive, he was anxious to become involved and participate in a variety of community activities. Ed felt that many of the skills he had acquired during his more than 40 years of professional management experience would be valuable assets to bring to a variety of community activities. He also believed that his background working with non-profit organizations in education, industry, government and community activities would be important as well.

Having been a member of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) for 39 years, Ed recently completed two years (2012-2013) as an International Director on the Board of Directors of SME. He has also been active with Edmonds Community College (EdCC), participating as the SME Senior Chapter Advisor to EdCC’s SME Student Chapter, a member of the Material Science and Technology Advisory Committee and the EdCC Worker Retraining Committee.

In addition, he also continues to dedicate time to other South Whidbey area nonprofit organizations and activities including, support to WICA, SW schools, community workforce development, the SW Yacht Club/Parks and Recreation Youth and Adult Sailing Camps Program and the Rotary Club of Whidbey – Westside.
