Their son Jon, is a Senior Solutions Consultant for the SAS Institute in Raleigh, NC who credits his success to his education at TC Prep and St. Martin’s University.

Gordon commented, “I support the Foundation since it’s mission is to further Catholic Education in the Diocese of Yakima (K through the University), a critical piece of our Catholic identity and the development of our future leaders & citizens.

I encourage all of you to step up, reach into your wallets & bank accounts and help us help you through the education of our most valuable asset….our children.”
