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 Economics at the State University of New York at Oneonta, and has been in Colorado since 1992. He lives in Denver with his wife and their dog Izzy, taking time when he can to snowboard and scuba dive.

Isabelle aka “Izzy” 10/9/19 -Present – She is a symbol of the Puksta Love that runs through the heart of our programs. She is still a playful puppy and is constantly learning to overcome obstacles in her life, as we all are working to overcome and tackle issues in our community.
Molly 8/8/01-3/16/18 – Our very first Puksta mascot will never be forgotten. She lives on in the spirit of Puksta. She brought so much joy to all of us, whether it was running around at Puksta retreats trying to get in on a soccer game, interrupting with her cuteness while we were trying to listen to a presentation or snuggling in the arms of a Puksta Scholar to show some unconditional love. We love and thank you Molly for teaching us to be better and all the precious memories you gave us.
