Jason is a combat United States Marine Corps veteran. He started helping out OSOAmil due to wanting to help military families. Jason loves spending time with his son, daughter, and wife.
Connie Chappeler has a very close heart to OSOAmil as the founder Kimberly Felshaw is her daughter and Kimberly’s daughter Allyssa was her first grand-daughter. When Kimberly decided to give back in honor of her daughter, Connie thought that was the greatest idea. It was really touching to see a church, reach out to the military families. Kimberly has a heart of compassion, as does Connie and Connie felt it would be a great idea to help the military families. Connie can’t always be at our military baby showers, that is why our volunteers are so special. Without our volunteers help, especially Courtney, the organization wouldn’t be what it is today.
