Providing leadership to JS Morton High School District 201, Jeff Pesek oversees the board of education as president. Jeff Pesek also upholds a commitment to supporting charitable causes by contributing to the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).

WWP has served more than 13,000 families since its inception. The organization intends to help 10,000 more warriors and caregivers gain employment through its Warriors to Work program.

Warriors to Work was formed as part of WWP’s economic empowerment initiative, which also includes the Transition Training Academy and education services. Warriors to Work focuses on reducing unemployment and establishing long-term financial stability among those who have served the nation. Veterans gain access to specialists, who help them identify attainable career goals, write resumes, and prepare for interviews. In addition, the Warriors to Work creates opportunities for veterans to network with hiring managers of businesses that match their skill set and experience. Individuals registered in WWP’s family support program may also use the Warriors to Work service.
