Jack Groban and his wife, Lindy, were captivated by the San Juan Islands through a Four Winds camp presentation in Los Angeles, where they lived. A subsequent business meeting in Seattle led to a weekend reconnaissance trip to Orcas. Four months later, they closed on a house and have spent the majority of each year on the Island since 2004.
They are ardent supporters of the important conservation and stewardship work of the San Juan Preservation Trust in ensuring that the natural health and beauty of the San Juan Islands are preserved for future generations.
Prior to joining the Preservation Trust’s board of trustees, Jack assisted SJPT in its search for a new Executive Director, drawing on his 40-year career in executive search. He established his own firm in 2001, following leadership roles with PriceWaterhouseCoopers, AT Kearney, and other major firms.
Jack and Lindy have two grown sons who also own property on Orcas Island. As time permits, they all enjoy cruising the islands on their Grand Banks 32, Awhimaway. Jack serves on the board of the Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival, and also on the board of the Find Your Light Foundation, which supports arts education programs and advocacy nationally.
