Jaek Avants is a young professional from Dallas, TX and a recent transplant to the Seattle area. His love for nonprofit work began when he volunteered at a food pantry and then joined the North Texas Food Bank in their new mobile pantry program. In the 3 years he was with NTFB, he worked with the mobile pantry team to expand the program from 10 sites in 1 county to over 50 sites across 8 counties and several college campuses.
In his free time, Jaek likes to hike, go camping, playing kickball, albeit not very well and trying new foods. He looks forward to immersing into the culture of the PNW and establishing new roots.
