Corporal Jon Schumacher will be leaving the Marine Corp at the end of June and his family has chosen Temecula to make their home; Jon is a triple amputee after stepping on an IED in Afghanistan in October 2011. After approximately 100 surgeries to repair the damage he is learning to walk using prosthetic legs but it’s a long slow process. When members of the Rotary Club’s Military Support Committee learned of the needs of this family he contacted Jeff Conner at Pacific Mobility in San Marcos to see if they could help.
Pacific Mobility has a long relationship with the military, and according to owner and President Jeff Conner they unfortunately learn of these kind of needs much too often. Jeff knew he wanted to help so he contacted Bruno Independent Living Aids, Inc., who they have done business with since 1986. Bruno is a family owned company, a leading manufacturer of Stair Lifts based in Oconomowoc, WI. When owner Mike Bruno heard Corporal Schumacher’s story he agreed they had to help.Read more...

Vocational service is one of Rotary’s “Avenues of Service” and encourages members to serve others through their professions and to practice high ethical standards. Each October Rotary Club members nominate distinguished members of the community that exemplify service above self through their careers upholding high ethical standards. In previous years the club has honored only one or two recipients but according to program chairman Kevin Vernon “it has become clear that even in the toughest of times there are many business people in the Temecula Valley who give of their time in extraordinary ways”.
