Jeff Orth

DISTRICT GOVERNOR 2016-2017 District 5170

District Governor Jeff Orth’s Visit to the Club

Introduced by: Moira Sullivan

Jeff joined the Rotary Club of Gilroy California in 1999. He served as Club President in 2005-2006 during the 100th Anniversary of Rotary. Jeff is most proud of the formation of “JumpStart”, a District wide program providing “at-risk” youth with pajamas, sport bags, alarm clocks and notebook computers, for chartering the Gilroy Sunrise Club, and for comprehensive Area Club collaboration on local and international projects.

Jeff has held positions at both the local and District level, including Area Representative for the Foundation, Assistant Governor, Youth Service Chair, Lieutenant Governor and District Conference Chair. He is a member of the Paul Harris Society and is the recipient of the Ward Garing Award for exceptional service to the youth in District 5170. Jeff is serving as District Governor for 5170 in 2016-2017.

Jeff enjoys being a Rotarian for the many service opportunities and for the leverage that Rotary can provide for maximum benefit to others. He has experienced first-hand the truth in the saying, “I joined Rotary for business and fellowship. I stayed in Rotary to change the world”.

A graduate of the University of California at Davis, Jeff has advance credentials as a Charted Financial Consultant and a Chartered Advisor in Senior Living from The American College. He owns a coast-to-coast financial planning/wealth management business with clients in eight states. Jeff and his wife, Barbara, have three children and four grandchildren.
