When Cheryl Jensen founded the Vail Veterans Program in 2004 and invited seven wounded warriors to Vail, she thought it would be a one-time event. Under Jensen’s dedicated leadership over the last 18 years, what began as a single event grew into a wide variety of programs that have served over 3,300 veterans and their families. Programs range from the adventurous to the connective, including summer and winter therapeutic recreational programming, caregiver-specific wellness events, and empowerment training. Jen will oversee the current programming and implement strategic intiatives built around a steadfast commitment to meet the evolving needs of the veterans and their families. 

“I am excited to welcome Jen Brown to Vail Veterans Program, I know with her leadership, passion for the mission of the organization and ability to build collaborative partnerships she will lead the organization in a way that will continue to help our wounded veterans thrive.” 
– Cheryl Jensen, President/Founder Vail Veterans Program.

Jensen will continue in her role as founder of the Vail Veterans Program and remain connected to the organization.
