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.

Rotary has a long history of supporting our military. The Rotary Club of Temecula has picked up on that tradition and created The Military Family Support Project. Our project is simple in its very own nature. Listen to the issues facing our local Military Personnel, and their families, and apply the necessary resources that are needed to resolve the issue.
