Email: district1@portofsouthwhidbey.com

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.

Greg Easton

President, Representing District 2 (Langley)

I’ve been a part-time resident of South Whidbey since 2004, and a full-time resident since 2020. I retired as an economic consultant in 2018 after 43 years serving public agencies and private property owners. I specialized in issues related to land use and facilities development. My services included:

  • Market Analysis
  • Financial feasibility
  • Economic Development
  • Community Development

I worked with dozens of public port districts in Washington State, and I found them to be unique in their missions of transportation, economic development and recreation, and their entrepreneurial spirit in pursuing those missions. I welcome the chance to be a part of such an organization.

My experience includes several topics that are particularly relevant to the Port of South Whidbey. I’ve worked with public ports of all types and sizes throughout Washington and the west coast. I’ve prepared economic development plans for local communities and identified economic impacts of a variety of public and private projects. I have conducted market analyses and feasibility studies for a wide range of public facilities including recreation, transportation, industrial, and administrative facilities, and I have specific expertise in analysis of public assembly and event facilities.

I am active with several local organizations involved in planning and community development. I am the Chair of the Planning Advisory Board in Langley and served on the Affordable Housing Ad Hoc Committee. I serve on the Island County Housing Advisory Board.

I’m a life-long resident of the Puget Sound area, and spent many summers on Whidbey Island, particularly Deception Pass State Park. My interests continue to be hiking, kayaking, biking and running.
