John Mulstay, Executive Director
A Senior Vice President in a prestigious Colorado investment firm, John has been a part of The Puksta Foundation from the beginning. He is the person that Harry and Eva turned to when planning their estate and putting the foundation together, dedicating the couple’s wealth to the “good kids” of the community. John made the first gift from The Puksta Foundation in 2001 and continues granting scholarships to this day.

John grew up in New York, earned his B.A. in Business and Economic at the State University of New York at Oneonta and has been in Colorado since 1995. He lives in Denver with his wife and their dog Molly, taking time when he can to snowboard and scuba dive.
