John Jahnke, Green Bay, WI: WDA 4 & 5
John is the father of a child with a disability and the brother of someone with a disability. He has watched his sibling work through the available resources and his sibling will soon be coming off of support and will be fully independent. John has seen the rewards of working toward and achieving increasing levels of independence, and he believes the system can work. 
He is excited to be part of the Promise team and to work toward a future where the focus is on a person's abilities and not their disabilities. He believes that when we allow ourselves to look past obstacles people may have, we can see the incredible skills they possess to overcome their obstacles.
