Rotary Club of JH announces Rotarian of the Year and transition of leadership

JACKSON, Wyo. — Yesterday, Jessica Jaubert was honored as Rotarian of the Year by the Rotary Club of Jackson Hole (RCJH).

Jaubert, who currently serves as President-Elect and chairs communications on the Rotary Board, was recognized for her service to the club during a year where most meetings were held remotely.

“Jessica has long given her time and talent selflessly to our Rotary Lunch Club,” said President Melissa Turley. “She stepped up in this past year, in myriad ways and contributed to the vibrancy and public presence of the Rotary Club of Jackson Hole in a remarkable way.”

President Melissa Turley and the Rotary Lunch Club also recognized Joe Albright as Rotarian of the Month for his exemplary work and dedication to educating folks about COVID and the vaccines in our community over the last 16 months.

Albright’s work with Teton County Public Health and St. John’s Health assisted the entire community in everything from contact tracing to vaccine awareness.

“His long hours as a volunteer immensely helped our valley during a time of uncertainty and challenges,” said RCJH.

“Joe’s work since the beginning of the pandemic has been one of service, selflessness and love for his community,” President Melissa Turley said. “Our club is fortunate to have leaders who rise and give of their time in a way that inspires others about what service means and contributes to the health and safety of our valley.”

During Tuesday’s meeting, Melissa Turley turned over leadership of the Rotary Lunch Club to incoming President Jim Waldrop. Waldrop will lead the local Rotary Lunch Club until summer 2022.
